What to Know
The UConn Huskies will look to defend their home turf on Thursday against the NC State Wolfpack at 7:30 p.m. ET at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field.
These teams both struggled last season when it came to fourth down efficiency. UConn were ranked 112th in the nation, having averaged an unimpressive 41.7% over the course of the season. NC State, meanwhile, were ranked 108th at 39.6%.
Looking back to last season, UConn finished a solid 6-6 in the regular season last year, but they’re hoping to make up for the 28-14 loss they were dealt in the Myrtle Beach Bowl. Speaking of bowl games, NC State finished 8-4 in the regular season but they also didn’t get the ending they wanted: they suffered a 16-12 loss in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.
UConn will need to dig deep on Thursday, as the experts think they’re headed for a loss. They finished last season with a stellar 9-4 record against the spread, so they might be worth a quick bet.
UConn was pulverized by NC State 41-10 in their previous matchup last September. Will UConn have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the match or check back on CBS Sports to find out.
