We’re just under three hours until kickoff between the UConn Huskies and Temple Owls, so let’s take a look at what head coach Bob Diaco, QB Chandler Whitmer, CB Byron Jones and S Junior Lee expect from them this afternoon.
UConn Huskies head football coach Bob Diaco held his weekly pregame press conference on Tuesday afternoon in anticipation of Saturday’s game against the Temple Owls (4 p.m. kickoff) and talked about a myriad of things.
His opening statement which is usually just a short few moments, went close to 10 minutes this week.
He got things started off with a quote in regards to the game...

With backup quarterback Tim Boyle not available due to a leg injury, it seemed like the safe option for Bob Diaco and his team in rainy conditions.

After opening the game with a running back fumble for the third game in a row, Boise State scooped the loose ball up and ran it back...
The UConn Huskies have a tough assignment on Saturday as they host the Boise State Broncos in the third game of a season-opening three-game home stand.
The Huskies and Broncos are both 1-1 but you would be hard pressed to view the teams as even. These aren’t the BCS bowl-winning Broncos, but they are still a good football team and one that has designs on winning a lot of games...
As we know, UConn Huskies QB Chandler Whitmer decided to return to school for his fifth and final year of eligibility.
