ESPN's Brian Bennet calls UConn a "hot" team in the Big East. Here are highlights from the article:

"Buzz has been steadily building all offseason about UConn. I've been pumping the Huskies as a Top 25 team and a potential Big East title contender. They even got their first-ever first-place vote in the league's preseason media poll, finishing in their highest spot in those rankings (fourth)."

  • Connecticut won its final four games last season
  • Huskies lost their five games last season by a total of 15 points
  • bring back 16 starters
  • have other league contenders at home
  • Jordan Todman success at RB

Bennett also lists some reasons why the Huskies may be vulnerable and not such a hit:

  • Big wins came against ok but not GREAT teams
  • Pass defense needs help, was worst in league
  • lost star rusher and reciever

Important points of latest practice update:

  • there are 24 practices left and Edsall feels "encouraged" by what he sees. seems happy with this team
  • a few minor injuries but "everyone was out here today and healthy"
  • "We have been very effective in practice all week"
  • "We think about the [Michigan] game all the time"

They are making it a point to win Michigan game.

Brian Bennet places over/under at:

"Connecticut: 8.5

This seems like the magic number for UConn, which has gone 7-5 in the regular season the past two years. The Huskies' highest FBS win total was nine in 2007. This looks like their best team yet, though. "

Also, calls their O-Line the best in the conference:

"UConn's line paved the way for two 1,000-yard rushers last year in Andre Dixon and Jordan Todman. The season before that, Donald Brown ran for more than 2,000 yards. "

"Connecticut's linemen aren't just big. They're extremely well-coached and have fantastic footwork, a huge emphasis by offensive line coach Mike Foley."

UConn's OL could be a huge asset and contribute greatly to their win column, especially given their talent at RB.

Rivals preview of the UConn season:

"OVERALL OUTLOOK

Connecticut has finished with a winning record in Big East play just one time (2007, when the Huskies shared the Big East title with West Virginia). The Huskies will look to build on their late-season momentum and turn all those narrow losses to close wins. With 16 returning starters, the Huskies are poised to make a run at the Big East title. "

Injury/Suspension report:

Junior DE Marcus Campbell, who was at #1 on the depth chart, is out for the season (ACL)

Backup QB Cody Endres suspended indefinitely. This puts a little more pressure on Frazer.

UConn recieves 32 points in pre-season AP poll. (Rank of 31).

Their highest ranked opponent, at least as it stands today, is Pitt at 15. Next highest ranked opponent is WVU at 25.

South Carolina, who they beat in their bowl game last year, received slightly more points than UConn.

    With the climate going on in NCAA athletics, you’re either moving forward at a hard pace or you’re not. I think what intrigued me the most is they’re very determined to become a big player nationally.
