Big East Football Media Day: UConn Huskies Preview

The Connecticut Huskies football program enters the 2012-13 season, as one of the biggest questions marks in the league. Last season was a tough one for UConn, which compiled a 5-7 record under first-year head coach Paul Pasqualoni and missed a bowl game just a year after earning the conference's BCS bowl bid.

One of the biggest reasons for the Huskies regression was the lack of a true No. 1 quarterback, as three players -- Johnny McEntee, Scott McCummings and Jonathan Jean-Louis -- saw a solid amount of playing time behind center but production was minimal at best.

This season, both McEntee and McCummings return and a progression in play from either would help UConn rebound.

What should be consistent for the Huskies is the play of sophomore running back Lyle McCombs, who rushed for 1,151 yards last year.

The defensive returns eight starters including three at the linebacker position and defensive end Trevardo Williams.

At the Big East media day, both McCombs and Williams will be UConn representatives, as well as, tight end Ryan Griffin and corner back Blidi Wreh-Wilson.
