There’s nowhere to go but up for the Connecticut Huskies football program, as head coach Bob Diaco went 2-10 overall a season ago in his first year as head coach, winning only one game in the conference as well while getting acclimated to a strong AAC. The rebuilding of the program was made a little more difficult with conference realignment, but it’s a task the program is committed to let Diaco manage.
One of their two wins surprisingly came against one of the top teams in the conference, perhaps something the program can latch onto and build upon. That win, which was against UCF, also came at home, giving the UConn fans something to cheer about during an overall poor season.
The running game will be the focal point of a UConn offensive attack that wasn’t too successful last season. Diaco is hoping running backs Max DeLorenzo and Ron Johnson can follow a veteran offensive line unit to make things a little easier for new quarterback Tim Boyle.
UConn will have chances to earn wins against some pretty high-profile teams, including a non-conference clash with the Missouri Tigers. For those looking to support the team at home or on the road next season, the average prices for UConn football tickets on the secondary market are posted below, with information provided by TiqIQ.com.
