College Football Pick’em
Start or Sit (NFC Home Games)
Talking the business of sports
After a two-game homestand, the Connecticut Huskies will be on the road. They will take on the Michigan Wolverines at noon ET on Saturday at Michigan Stadium. The Huskies are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one.
The night started off rough for UConn last week, and it ended that way, too. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 48-14 punch to the gut against the Syracuse Orange. UConn was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 27-7. No one had a standout game offensively for UConn, but they got scores from WR Aaron Turner and RB Devontae Houston. Near the top of the highlight reel was Zion Turner’s 56-yard TD bomb to Turner in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, Michigan turned the game against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors into a track meet and took the gold after outgaining them 588 yards to 253. Michigan took their contest at home last week with ease, bagging a 56-10 victory over Hawaii. With the Wolverines ahead 42 to nothing at the half, the matchup was all but over already. Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 229 yards on 12 attempts.
Michigan’s win lifted them to 2-0 while Connecticut’s defeat dropped them down to 1-2. We’ll find out if Michigan can add another positive mark to their record or if UConn can shake off the loss and take the spring out of Michigan’s step.
Michigan wraps up its non-conference schedule with a 59-0 pasting of UConn. It’s the eighth-largest margin of victory in program history. https://t.co/3zz4FvyFrq
