A sloppy but successful win over the lowly Buffalo Bulls for the Huskies. The offense again struggled early and often and without the big play capability of Nick Williams, especially after the catch, UConn fails to score any touchdowns in this game. The defense stuck to its guns and at times bent to the point of breaking only to come up with a big stop forcing a field goal or getting a turnover to stop the Bulls from doing any real damage. The special teams had its own troubles with poor punts and a blocked field goal. This team has potential, but it cannot be understated that without better offensive line play, quarterback play, and better routes from the wide receivers this win will be one of the few UConn can record this season.
The take away from this game is unfortunately that the offense will need to do much better against every team UConn will play in the future because no one else will struggle like the Bulls did. Without the ability to convert third downs and create a stable balance between run and pass this Huskies team will not be able to score enough points to compete with some of the better Big East teams.
An interesting note from tonight's game, Paul Pasqualoni becomes the all time winningest coach in Big East history. Congrats coach.
