Dixon, Witten cleared

From Randy Edsall's Thursday media call:
  • Andre Dixon and Lindsey Witten were both cleared to play Friday.
  • Cody Endres earned backup quarterback status this week again, though Edsall said Zach Frazer had an improved week of practice. "Next week, that could change," Edsall said.
  • Weekday games are supposed to be a boon for college programs from a recruiting standpoint because they're the only game on TV. Not quite on Friday nights, though. Recruits are all playing high school games, so very few, if any, can make the trip to Storrs to visit. They usually miss most of the TV broadcast, as well. "It hurts more than it helps," Edsall said. "You don't get as much exposure as you think you do on Friday night from a recruiting standpoint." Of course, a school can always say no to the almighty ESPN. But, there goes the revenue from that night.

The college picks for the week to be posted soon.
