UConn Vs. Western Michigan: TV Schedule, Time, History And More

Johnny McEntee and the UConn Huskies face the Western Michigan Broncos in a non-conference battle at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT.

Event: Connecticut Huskies vs. Western Michigan Broncos - NCAA Football, Week 4.

Date/Time: Saturday, October 1, 2011 - 3:30 p.m. EDT.

Location: Rentschler Field (Capacity: 40,000), East Hartford, CT.

Broadcast Info: Saturday's game between the Huskies and Broncos will be aired on SNY, with ESPN Radio's Bob Picozzi on play-by-play duty, John Buntin on color commentary. In addition, the game can be heard on WTIC-1080 AM, the home of UConn football for the last 20 years. Joe D'Ambrosio is on play-by-play, Wayne Norman is on color analysis duty and Kevin Nathan is on the sidelines.

Series History: UConn and Western Michigan have met only once before, with the Huskies coming away with a huge 43-27 win over the Broncos on November 1, 2003. Cornell Brockington had a whopping five touchdowns in the win (four rushing, one receiving) and ran for 186 yards in the victory.

Last Week: The Huskies cruised to a 17-3 win over Buffalo in Amherst, New York last Saturday. Johnny McEntee snapped into form in the win, throwing for 213 yards and two touchdowns and Nick Williams had two catches for 113 yards and a touchdown for UConn. Oddly, Buffalo out-gained UConn, 319-293, in total yards.

Storyline: Uconn struggled in the passing game earlier in the season and didn't have a clear standout candidate to start at quarterback. Enter Johnny McEntee, who has put together a solid resume after the Huskies' 1-1 start (at least, better than any other UConn quarterback). If McEntee is on his game, UConn should be able to score. Lyle McCombs also stepped up big filling in for D.J. Shoemate in the backfield, and has proven that he can carry the team on the ground when the passing attack isn't functioning at full capacity.
