TheRoundUp 11/9: Hey, football still exists

Journal Inquirer - Football: Win over Pittsburgh crucial for UConn
The University of Connecticut football team didn’t play a game last week, but its chances at a Big East championship increased. South Florida defeated Rutgers on Wednesday and Louisville headed off Syracuse on Saturday, and the Big East race tightened behind undefeated Pittsburgh. UConn is 1-2 in conference, yet still has a chance for the conference crown. Except for Pittsburgh (5-3, 3-0), UConn’s opponent Thursday (Rentschler Field, 7:30 p.m., ESPN) every other team in the Big East has two losses in conference play.
