EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut and Iowa State don’t
often get to bask in the national football spotlight.
Both want to make the most of the opportunity on Friday night,
when the defending Big East co-champion Huskies (1-1) play host to
the Cyclones (2-0).
UConn (1-1) is trying rebound from a disappointing 24-21 road
loss at Vanderbilt, while Iowa State is coming off an emotional
44-41 triple-overtime win over rival Iowa.
The game will match a Cyclones offense that put up 473 yards
against the Hawkeyes against a Connecticut defense that’s giving up
just 214 yards a game.
UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni says all three Husky quarterbacks
likely will play in the game, and he is not expected to name a
starter until just before kickoff.
