National TV time tonight for former UConn captain

Former UConn offensive lineman Alex Mateas is slated to start at left offensive guard as defending CFL champion Ottawa faces Toronto tonight at 7:30 p.m. The game will be televised live on ESPN2.

Ottawa leads the CFL with 1,755 passing yards and 10 passing TDs in the first five games of the season which is something new for Mateas. When he was a senior  at UConn the Huskies ranked 113th among 128 FBS teams in passing offense.

Ottawa's defense has been an issue giving up 28.4 points per game leading to a 1-3-1 start.

Mateas is one of four former UConn players in the CFL. Defensive end Jesse Joseph and long snapper Martin Bedard play for Montreal and defensive lineman Reuben Frank was recently signed by Calgary.
