USF/UConn getting ready for crucial contest

When the votes were cast, UConn and South Florida were picked to finish at the bottom of the American Athletic Conference East Division and if the voting were to include all AAC teams, likely the Huskies and Bulls would have been near the bottom in that balloting as well.

However, they enter today's game with realistic hopes of attaining bowl eligibility.

UConn is 3-3 and coming off a dominating effort in a win at Central Florida. USF stands at 2-3 following a convincing win over Syracuse.

If recent history counts for anything, this will be a low-scoring, one-possession affair. The last time the annual game was decided by more than seven points came in 2006 when South Florida rolled to a 38-16 victory.

UConn won back to back games in the series without scoring an offensive touchdown and in the last five meetings, the only player to score multiple touchdowns for UConn is former defensive back Byron Jones.

It should be an interesting day.

The live blog for today's game has been started so feel free to check it out
