Season Summary: Under second year Head Coach Bob Diaco, the Huskies went from 2-10 to 6-6, a marked improvement considering they haven’t reached the postseason or had a season winning percentage of or above .500 since 2010-11. While the team still has its struggles, it has remained competitive throughout the year, including a huge upset of the highest ranked G5 school, Houston. Why we are going to win: UConn is 33rd nationally in total defense (352.3 yards allowed per game), but the Huskies are even better against the pass, being ranked 21st (187 yards a game). UConn is 19th in points against, only letting up an average of 19.8 points per game. UConn is tied for 11th nationally in interceptions with 17, and sophomore cornerback Jamar Summers ended the regular season tied for third in the country. This stout defense will try and shut down the Marshall offense. MarshallMarshall Thundering Herd
Season Summary: Last season was the best season under Doc Holiday’s tenure at Marshall, finishing the season 13-1 with a CUSA championship, bowl win over NIU in the Boca Raton bowl and finishing #23 in the final AP poll. Doc Holliday's Thundering Herd wasn't able to repeat as Conference USA champions in 2015, but Marshall is headed to its third consecutive bowl game and fourth in six years. Despite losses to Ohio and a heartbreaking loss in 2 OT to Middle Tennessee State, Marshall entered the last week of the season in position to win the Conference USA East title for the third consecutive year. The Thundering Herd fell in a winner-take-all game at Western Kentucky for the CUSA East title and finished the season 9-3 (6-2). Why Marshall is going to win: Storrs, Connecticut is home to one of the worst offenses in the FBS this season. Connecticut averaged 17.8 points per game, and ranked 107th or lower in scoring, yards per play, third-down conversions and sacks and tackles for loss allowed. The Herd presents major worries for the leaky Husky O-line, because of DE Gary Thompson and LB Evan McKelvey. Marshall generated a C-USA-leading 27 turnovers this season, and held opponents to just 201 passing yards per game. True freshman quarterback Chase Litton has effectively controlled the offense in Birdsong’s absence with the help of a committee of running backs including Remi Watson, Keion Davis and Tony Pittman which are combined for more than 1,200 yards. Holiday is undefeated in bowl games as head coach of the Thundering Herd, going 3-0. Why you should watch the game: This is the first meeting between these two teams and should be a defensive struggle. Marshall’s Deandre Reeves has been a particular highlight for their special teams, with three returns for touchdowns, so be sure to watch out for him on kick returns! UConn’s CB Jamar Summers is also a playmaker for their defense, with game-clinching interceptions against Tulane and Houston, so there is sure to be a lot of action during this game.
