Huskies playing for their season

This one should be interesting.

UConn is coming into tonight's game with an 0-4 Big East record and are facing a Pittsburgh team playing its best football of the season.

The thing about the Huskies this season is everything has been a struggle - especially in conference play.

Turnovers have been hard to come by, special teams dynamo Nick Williams has not had many chances to showcase his game-breaking ability and the running game has needed to get their yards seemingly one yard at a time. It bears watching whether any of that will change.

Getting Pitt to turn the ball over won't be an easy task. Redshirt senior quarterback Tino Sunseri has not thrown an interception in his last 172 attempts and scintillating tailback Ray Graham isn't going to put the ball on the turf too often.

It will also be intriguing to see if UConn sophomore Gus Cruz is more comfortable as he makes his second straight start and third overall at right guard for an injured Adam Masters.

By now pretty much everybody knows what is at stake. If UConn loses tonight, the Huskies will clinch a second straight losing season, will no longer be in contention for bowl eligibility and will move one step closer to a winless run through conference play
