UConn's defense to be tested by Bridgewater

With all the rumors flying about which conference UConn will be playing in down the road, it's easy to forget that there's actually a football game coming up on Saturday.

For UConn, the trip to Louisville is not only a chance to show they are a better team than their record might indicate but also for the seniors, a win is a must if the Huskies want to go into the regular-season finale against Cincinnati having a chance of becoming bowl eligible.

UConn is 0-3 on the road in conference play this season and now the Huskies face the preseason Big East favorite and a team with hopes of earning the Big East's BCS bowl slot.

The nationally-ranked UConn defense figures to be tested by Louisville's dynamic sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater who is fifth nationally in passing efficiency. All Bridgewater has done is complete 70.2 percent of his passes for 2,858 yards, 21 touchdowns and just five interceptions.

"They have a great offense down there Teddy Bridgewater is an accomplished quarterback," UConn senior linebacker Sio Moore said. "He is a young guy but he is working his tail off. It is time for us to show what we can do on defense, offense and special teams."
