Coach: Randy Edsall (7th year at Connecticut)
Team Name: Huskies
2004 Record: 8-4
2004 Big East Conference Record 3-3
2004 ATS Record: 5-6
Returning Starters: 11

Over the summer Connecticut lost stud QB Dan Orlovsky to the NFL draft. New starting QB Matt Bonislawski will take over the offensive reins. Bonislawski has only thrown 7 passes in his College career. Matt is a big down grade from Orlovsky and the Huskies offense should experience some growing pains. Connecticut does have 2 fearsome running backs in Terry Caulley and Cornell Brockington, but due to 4 new starters on the o-line we have doubts these 2 will be able to have the success they have enjoyed in previous seasons. Last year the defense was an asset for UCONN, but with major losses in the secondary and line backing core, plenty of holes will need to be filled. The Huskies do play a soft non conference schedule and have 4 Big East home games, so a winning season is possible if the right pieces fall into place.
