UConn Football vs. Boise State Open Thread | TV: ESPNU, 10:15 p.m.

Come hang out with us tonight as the Huskies face their second ranked opponent in two weeks!

When UConn football takes the field at Boise State, they’ll be making some program history with the longest regular-season road trip ever. Other long road trips in recent memory include heading to BYU in 2015 and for the Fiesta Bowl in 2011.

It is just the second all-time meetings between the two schools, with the first coming in 2014 — Bob Diaco’s first season. UConn kept the game close for three quarters, trailing by just three with just over 16 minutes left after a Geremy Davis touchdown catch.

However, turnovers killed the Huskies as the Broncos pulled away with a pair of touchdowns in the final quarter to earn the 38-21 victory.

Boise State currently sits at No. 20 in the AP Top 25 poll after an easy 56-20 road win over Troy. UConn is the only team in the country to open up against back-to-back ranked teams, a tough draw for a very young team that is trying to build up confidence.

It’s going to be a late night for those of us watching from the East Coast, so stay up with us and chat about the game in the comments!
