TheRoundUp 9/26: UConn, where 12 of 21 against Buffalo means you're the starter

UCONN FOOTBALL: Johnny McEntee separates himself in QB competition - Houston Chronicle
On the heels of an efficient outing in which he completed 12-of-21 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns and no turnovers in a 17-3 win at Buffalo, junior Johnny McEntee has "clearly separated himself" at the position, UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni said Sunday.

"There were times when they had very little regard to the pass," Pasqualoni said Sunday. "The safeties were sprinting to the line of scrimmage and adding extra defenders in there that you don't have enough blockers for. Fortunately we were able to get the ball out in the pass game, some. And we were able to hurt the defense in that regard. We're going to have to be able to make people respect the pass. … Now, we're going to try and run the ball regardless. But there's times when it's just hard to do that."

Pasqualoni would not go so far as to officially crown McEntee the starter, saying "we don’t make decisions, but he has clearly separated himself, put himself in a position now to move forward."

"Johnny made some good decisions," UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni said in his weekly post-game conference call with reporters. "It wasn't perfect, but he made some good decisions and he's got something to build on at this point."

Williams caught two passes from Johnny McEntee for 113 yards and they made all the difference. The first in the closing minutes of the first half went for 64 yards and set up UConn's first touchdown. The second went for 49 yards in the closing minutes of the game and was Williams' first touchdown catch since high school in New Jersey.

UConn averaged 1.9 yards a carry in the game, gaining 80 yards on 42 carries. Shoemate was essentially nonexistent. The best bet UConn has moving forward may be to get Nick Williams more involved in the offense. He had the biggest plays of the game for the offense -- a 64-yard catch that set up the first touchdown, and a 49-yard touchdown pass from Johnny McEntee late in the fourth quarter to cap the scoring.
