The UConn Huskies and Army Black Knights face off on Saturday in a Week 3 College football showdown at Michie Stadium. These two teams last faced off in 2015 and it was UConn that came away with the 22-17 victory. 

UConn has started their season with three losses, and they have already made a coaching change. Two of the games for UConn they were shutout, and the other game they lost to Holy Cross 38-28. In the last game against Purdue the defense gave up 49 points, and the offense didn’t get on the board. Quarterback Steven Krajewski completed 14 of his 25 passes for 99 yards, zero touchdowns, and an interception. He also rushed 11 times for 42 yards. UConn is averaging only 9.33 points per game, but more importantly if they want to win this game, the defense is going to need to be better. 

 On the other side of this matchup is the Army Black Knights who have two wins this season over Georgia State and Western Kentucky. In the last game, Army’s defense wasn’t as strong, but they still won 38-35. Army was outscored 21-10 in the 4th quarter, but they held on to cover the spread. Army runs option football, but in the last game Christian Anderson completed 5 of his 6 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown. Army is averaging 299.5 yards per game which is 6th best in college football. On defense Army has been a little inconsistent, but this is a great chance to gain some confidence on that side of the ball.

UConn is 1-5 against the spread in their last six non-conference games. Army is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games against a team with a losing record. The under is 4-1 in UConn’s last five games as an underdog. The over is 6-2 in Army’s last eight games overall. 

Army is the better team, and their defense is going to lock down in this game. UConn’s offense has been shut out in two games, and I don’t see them scoring any offense in this game. Back Army to win this game and cover the spread.
