Army (2-0) vs UConn (0-3) Game Preview
Why UConn Will Win
So is ANYTHING working here?
UConn started out the season getting rocked, the Randy Edsall era was over, and it responded by being nothing more than a light snack for Purdue in a 49-0 loss last week.
There’s a running game hidden among the problems, but it hasn’t emerged yet. No one has been able to get going, and Kevin Mensah has been bottled up from the start, but the Huskies have enough decent options to try pounding away.
The one plus is the ability to get behind the line. The defense isn’t bad at generating tackles for loss – seven per game – but …
Why Army Will Win
UConn is having issues against the run. That’s not a positive against Army.
Even with the ability to get into the backfield from time to time, the defensive front isn’t holding up against anyone who’s trying to run. It’s not getting totally destroyed – allowing 4.3 yards per carry – but that’s partly because the first three teams on the slate spent too much time throwing.
Army is totally on its game, tearing through Georgia State and WKU for a total of 600 yards and eight scores in the first two outings. Inside and out, the option is dominating.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s not just the running game for Army. The defense is holding up, doing just enough to survive the new and improved WKU passing game helped by the O holding the ball for almost 40 minutes a game.
Army will run for well over 300 yards, the defense will be far better on third downs than it was last week against the Hilltoppers, and the great season marches on.
