Joe D’s Notebook
FRIDAY, 9-12-14… Success breeds success. And after their first win of the season last Saturday, the UConn football team hopes to build on the win over Stony Brook against a team that could be their […]
Leave it to the best UConn player to sum up Saturday the best. The terrific Geremy Davis said it took ten games to get our first win a year ago and no one wanted to wait that long this season.
