The Cavalier Football Team will look for its sixth consecutive win on Saturday, as it hosts the Connecticut Huskies at Scott Stadium. UConn enters as one of only eleven unbeaten teams in NCAA Division I Football.
Connecticut's defense ranks very high in many different categories. The Huskies are fourth in total defense (250.6), fourth in scoring defense (11.0), and fifth in interceptions (11). They also score a little more than 36 points per game, meaning the Cavs will have their work cut out for them.
UConn is also coming off a bye week, meaning they've had an extra week to prepare for Virginia. The Cavaliers will most likely take the field without leading rusher Cedric Peerman, who suffered a foot injury in Saturday's win at Middle Tennessee State. Andrew Pearman and Keith Payne will split the duties in the backfield.
