The loss to Fresno State to open the season wasn’t all that shocking but last week’s loss to Holy Cross? Yeah, even I said to my friends that Edsall being a head coach at the FBS level is hysterical and he needed to go. I am glad to see they finally decided on it because you just can’t allow failure to be acceptable. Hey, I get it, not everyone is going to fly high and succeed every season but what has happened in Storrs lately is just a losing mentality. When you have zero expectations to even win 1 damn game?
Purdue impressed last week with a 30-21 win and cover against Oregon State in an entertaining affair. QB Jack Plummer was impressive, especially in the fourth quarter, as he tossed two touchdowns to TE Payne Durham in the final 4:56.
It’s a non-conference matchup on the gridiron when the Big Ten makes the trip to face the AAC in the Nutmeg State. The Purdue Boilermakers are on the road as they make the trip to face the UConn Huskies Saturday afternoon. Purdue opened their season with a 30-21 home victory over Oregon State in a non-conference tilt last Saturday. UConn became the first two-loss team in the FBS as they were dropped 38-28 at home by FCS program Holy Cross last Saturday in their most recent contest. This marks the first time that the two programs have met on the gridiron as FBS opponents.
