Few interesting notes about USF game

Just some things I thought people might find interesting regarding tomorrow's UConn/South Florida game

The last six games in this series have been decided by seven points or less
2007: UConn 22, South Florida 15
2008: South Florida 17, UConn 13
2009: UConn 29, South Florida 27
2010: UConn 19, South Florida 16
2011: UConn 16, South Florida 10
2012: South Florida 13, UConn 6

Punter Cole Wagner needs eight punts and 162 yards to break Adam Coles' career punting records at UConn and we're not even at the mdiway point of Wagner's senior season which might be the ultimate indication of what a struggle it has been offensively for the Huskies over the last four seasons.

According to a feature by Michael Lyle of the Middletown Press, the parents of freshman quarterback Tim Boyle will be attending a wedding tomorrow and will not be in attendance when Boyle makes his first career start.

South Florida's top two quarterbacks have frighteningly similar numbers. Bobby Eveld has thrown for 327 yards with a 42.9 completion percentage and a quarterback efficiency rating of 93.76. Steven Bench has 324 yards, 42.3 completion percentage and 99.65 QB rating.

UConn is 119th and South Florida 120th among 123 FBS teams in total offense. South Florida is last among FBS in completion percentage and UConn is last in rushing offense.

Saturday's game is UConn's homecoming game, a fact that has flown under the radar considering everything else going on with the program. It is also the game the Huskies have chosen to promote breast cancer awareness. Fans are encouraged to wear pink.
