It’s a non conference showdown on Saturday afternoon at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Connecticut Huskies make the trip to take on the Virginia Cavaliers.
This a really big game for both teams. These two teams have faced off three times with the Huskies winning two of those games.
These two teams played last in 2016 when the Huskies won by a final score of 13-10.
The Connecticut Huskies have not really been known as a football school, and not really many expect that to be much different this year, but they do come into this game with a 1-0 record.
They played a Holy Cross team even less known for football in week one and beat them by a final score of 27-20 which is really closer then it should have been.
One of the issues with the Huskies is they don’t have one starting quarterback, they have two, and I would guess both of them will play again in this game. Both of them played decent, but no one really wowed anyone with their stats or performance.
To win this game the Huskies are going to need to have one of the quarterbacks step up and play the game of their life.
To win this game the offensive production is going need to be better then normal, or it could be a real long afternoon of football.
On the other side of this match up is the Virginia Cavaliers who don’t really have high hopes for this season, and come into this game with a 1-1 record.
In their first game they played an FCS school and absolutely dominated, something they should have no issue doing but in the second game it was a much different story.
They played the Indiana Hoosiers and looked over matched from the first kickoff. The Cavaliers couldn’t slow down the Hoosiers offense and after giving up 17 points in the second quarter went on to lose by a final score of 34-17.
The Cavaliers are led by senior quarterback Kurt Benkert who comes into this game having thrown for 521 passing yards and four touchdowns.
To have success this season and in this game he is going to need to raise his game. He is playing well but he needs to make up for some of the struggles that the defense has.
