HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _
Connecticut coach Paul Pasqualoni says he’s not planning any immediate changes in the wake of the Huskies’ 33-18 season-opening loss at home to Towson, a school from the Football Championship Subdivision.
Pasqualoni, speaking to reporters on a conference call Friday, said he felt quarterback Chandler Whitmer showed some first-game jitters Thursday night, but is confident he’ll improve.

Pasqualoni, says he understands why fans were booing, but expressed encouragement that UConn was down by just eight points, before fumbling a punt with just over 3 minutes left in the game.

He says the Huskies made plenty of mistakes, but believes all of them are correctable, and he’s not adjusting expectations for a winning season.

UConn gets a week off before hosting Maryland and former coach Randy Edsall on Sept. 14.
