UConn vs. Army: By the Numbers, How to Watch, College Football TV Schedule

New, comments

A detailed look at the UConn versus Army match-up, along with the TV schedule for the weekend.

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

Football Study Hall, SB Nation's analytics-heavy college football site, does a weekly article where they project the results for the weekend's games using F/+ ratings. In Week 1, they projected a 4.1 point UConn win, which wasn't far off.

This week, the Huskies are projected to win by 8.8 points and given a 69.5% chance of winning.

Speaking of winning, Bryant Shirreffs won an award for top New England performer in Division 1 football, including both subdivisions. So take that, Boston College, UMass, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Central Connecticut, Bryant, Sacred Heart, Holy Cross, and most of the Ivy League!

Here are a few other interesting facts and figures pertaining to the game tomorrow:

51 - The number of UConn players who participated in the season opener against Villanova.

7 - This will be the seventh meeting between Army and UConn, with UConn leading the series 4-2. It is also the point spread for the game, in favor of the Huskies, and the number of years since UConn started a season 2-0.

2 - The number of tackle football games UConn won all of last year.

1973 - The year UConn Assistant Head Coach/Quarterbacks Coach  Burt Reynolds Don Patterson graduated from West Point.

52 - Receiving yards by Noel Thomas in the Army game last year. Look for him to eclipse that total.

1 - Player on the Army roster from Connecticut, Zach Maxwell from Southington.

143 - Rushing yards by Army's sophomore quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw in their season opener against Fordham, along with two touchdowns on the ground. He also added two passing touchdowns.

17 - The number of true freshmen who played for Army in Week 1, the second-most in the country.

College Football Schedule

Below you will find a full schedule of the college football action going down this weekend, but first a couple of suggestions:

USF at Florida State, 11:30 am, ESPN - Can the Bulls take down the heavily favored ACC power? Probably not! But this is a good chance to check out UConn's homecoming opponent and who knows, maybe Willie T has a few tricks up his sleeve. At least check out the first quarter before the UConn game.

Iowa at Iowa State, 4:30pm, FOX - In-state rivalries look fun... WE WANT YALE! (Oh wait, just kidding)

Missouri at Arkansas State, 7pm, ESPN3 - A good chance to scout out next week's opponent. Arkansas State is a pretty good team out of the Sun Belt. This game won't be a cakewalk for the Tigers.

ECU at Florida, 7pm, ESPN2 - ECU beat Virginia Tech last year, who beat Ohio State, who eventually won the national championship. So I guess you could call ECU the "one true champion" everyone keeps talking about. The Pirates might not be as good as they were last year, but Florida is rebuilding with a new head coach. Maybe this could be another marquee non-conference win for the AAC?

Memphis at Kansas, 7pm, ESPN3 - Well if ECU can't pull it off, Memphis certainly should be able to. Though this is a "power five" vs. "other five" match-up, the American Athletic Conference team is actually favored over the oh-so powerful Big 12 opponent. After losing to South Dakota State last week, spirits can't possibly be too high in Jayhawk country. Things aren't looking too promising for them with the visiting Tigers coming off a 10-3 season and a big win last week.

Temple at Cincinnati, 8pm, ESPNEWS - Conference season opener! This should be a really good game, as Cincinnati is expected to be the class of the conference, but Temple performed very impressively in their opening week win over Penn State. Temple can make a huge statement with a win here as contenders for the AAC-East. Cincinnati's talented offense will go up against a Temple defense returning all 11 starters from last year's team.

Boise State at BYU, 10:15pm, ESPNU - Let's see how BYU looks without their star quarterback Taysom Hill against a good Boise State team. They are still going to be a very formidable opponent for the Huskies, but perhaps they are slightly more beatable sans Hill.

UCF at Stanford, 10:30pm, FS1 - Two teams which suffered unexpected upset losses last week desperately looking to get back into the win column. Rooting for the conference mates here, especially since we don't want the #ConFLiCT to lose any juice.
