College Football Pick’em
Start or Sit (NFC Home Games)
Talking the business of sports
The Connecticut Huskies will stay at home another week and welcome the Syracuse Orange at 7 p.m. ET Sept. 10 at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field. After both teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
The Huskies made easy work of the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils last week and carried off a 28-3 win.
‘Cuse decided to play defense against itself last week, but the team still came out ahead despite their 87 penalty yards. They blew past the Louisville Cardinals 31-7. QB Garrett Shrader had a stellar game for the Orange as he passed for two TDs and 237 yards on 25 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 95 yards. Shrader’s 55-yard touchdown toss to RB Sean Tucker in the first quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
Their wins bumped UConn to 1-1 and ‘Cuse to 1-0. Both UConn and ‘Cuse have easy wins in recent memory. We’ll see which one’s ego takes a hit when they face off.
