Week 4 college football sees the Cowboys and Huskies meet at Rentschler Field.
The Wyoming Cowboys are heavily favored to ride into Storrs and thump on the UConn Huskies this Saturday afternoon. What a shocker LOL
So, the ultimate goal here for Wyoming is to not get embarrassed on the road against a winless team before their bye week. The Cowboys open up their MWC schedule in two weeks against Air Force for another version of the Front Range rivalry.
The UConn Huskies still haven’t named an official head coach so it seems that Lou Spanos has his hands full for now as the interim guy. “Cut me, Lou!” You Rocky fans get that one, but it is not just to stop the bleeding, it is to figure anything
The Cowboys are strongly favored by -29 points in this MW vs. Ind Conf matchup.
The Wyoming Cowboys have already outshined the 2020 season with 3 wins through 3 games after a 2 – 4 campaign. Head Coach Craig Bohl expressed his concern about facing UConn this weekend in the local Laramie newspapers, but let’s be honest about it. There will only be a concern if the Cowboys don’t care of business and keep UConn behind them on the scoreboard.
The spread is the spread, and I assume you all get by now that no one on that field is really concerned about the vegas line. UConn knows their situation and Wyoming has one job and that’s to escape Hartford with a win and have two weeks to prepare for Air Force.
This is tough to give a sense of the ‘trap game’ effect here because UConn would have to have more bark in that dog than they currently have to offer.
The Cowboys are coming off two wild encounters with a pair of MAC programs, with the term shootout being thrown around. A 50 – 43 win over NIU and a 45 – 12 thumping of Ball State have the Cowboys looking good on offense, or so it seems.
Wyoming does rank 38th in points with 38 per outing, but they rank 94th in passing yards averaging barely over 200 yards a game. The run game is averaging 173 yards a pop which places them at 59th.
Sean Chambers has taken every snap under center and has a decent 4 / 1 TO to INT ratio and 601 passing yards.
Xazavian Valladay leads this team in rushing and he is slowly getting out in the pattern to find space in the passing game. Valladay has found the end zone 3 times with 239 rush yards and he has also brought in 98 receiving yards on 5 grabs.
Already shutout twice and 0 – 4, Lou Spanos is probably hoping the UConn AD announced someone else can take over the program soon. Hey, I am sorry to be the downer guy here, but 0 – 4 doesn’t just look bad, it is bad and Wyoming was favored by 28 and it is moving closer to 30 as Saturday nears.
The Huskies have put 3 different QBs on the field in 2021 and none of them has a completion % over 52%. Oh, there’s more. There are 130 FBS programs, right?
UConn offense … 129th in total yards per game (204.5).
UConn defense … 125th in total yards allowed per game (493.3).
You still with me? Okay, good.
UConn is also ranked 129th allowing 48 PPG and their 243 rush yards allowed per outing ranks them 123.
The 3 QBs have been sacked a combined 9 times and they have all contributed to throw 3 TD passes … wait, only Jack Zergiotis has any TD passes this year, alrighty then.
I have written up all 4 UConn games here at CP, so I know what to expect because I have to sit through watching it. Until I can’t take anymore, of course! This is seriously one of the worst football teams in FBS and they would struggle to find wins at the FCS level too. They would/could go 4 – 4 in Big Sky play… maybe!
Kevin Mensah can only do so much out of the back-field with an offensive line that also looks uninterested.
In addition, when your leading wideout, Keelan Marion, only has 75 total yards and one 50 yard reception in that mix? He has caught 2 of the 3 TD passes this season for the Huskies though, woo hoo!

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Pick
Wyoming might be -30 by game time, but I see -29 as I put this up. So, I can only go by what I see and I see Wyoming handling the moment. No one wants to lose to a team as down as UConn is right now. Neither of the 3 QBs has shown any ability to keep drives moving and the defense is on the field entirely too much.
