UCONN Huskies vs Massachusetts Minutemen 10/26/2019 – The UCONN Huskies face the Massachusetts Minutemen this weekend in an American Athletic Conference showdown. Online betting sites favor the Huskies over the Minutemen who have just one win to show this season. US betting sites feel that the UCONN offensive machine will make life hard for UCONN who need to come up with a better defense. A bright spot is that they are playing at home. Despite the odds, Connecticut could defy all that by coming out with something special. This is for both the offensive and defensive ends.
UCONN Huskies vs Massachusetts Minutemen 10/26/2019
The UCONN Huskies may be favored but still, need to work to earn that win. The fact is that they are horrible on defense. They are allowing opponents to score 264 yards on the ground game. Worse, they are likely to miss the services of linebacker D.J. Morgan who remains injured (shoulder). They have lost six games in a row and a win could be forthcoming. They also need to improve on the offensive end. Quarterback Jack Zergiotis needs to do a better job if they want to secure this win.
Players to watch: J. Zergiotis QB 67 CMP 113 ATT 676 YDS 59.3 CMP% 6 AVG 40
LNG 3 TD 5 INT; K. Mensah RB 131 ATT 532 YDS 4.1 AVG 58 LNG; A. Thompkins RB 67 ATT 240 YDS 3.6 AVG 21 LNG; C. Ross WR 31 REC 358 YDS 11.5 AVG 40 LNG; A. Brown WR 19 REC 228 YDS 12 AVG 27 LNG
Notorious of having one of the worse defensive schemes to date, the Minutemen need to offset that with a good offense. This means that Massachusetts needs a better performance from Randall West. So far, he has only thrown only four scores and three picks since becoming the team’s starting QB. But for the Minutemen to buck the odds, they need other players involved. That includes running back Bilal Ally who has racked up 467 yards for the season along with four scores.
