UConn (0-2) vs #20 Boise State (2-0)
After opening the season against last years self-proclaimed National Champion, UCF, this week it didn’t get much easier for the UConn Huskies. This week they battled #20 Boise State who was coming off a week one blowout of Troy. UConn RB Zavier Scott was in the doghouse after fumbling last week and only saw limited snaps. The match-up didn’t go UConn’s way as the UCF Broncos galloped to a 62-7 win. Next week UConn looks to pick up its first win versus the University of Rhode Island.

Duquesne (2-1) vs. Valparaiso (0-1)
After an early start to the season, the Duquense Dukes met the Crusaders in the middle of a three home-game stretch. After a back and forth game, Duquesne trailed by four midway through the fourth quarter. They ultimately went into ground and pound to take the lead and hold off Valparaiso 23-21. Hradecny didn’t see the field despite a strong performance last week; he did, however, perform well in practice this week and will go forward hungry for more game time. Next week Duquesne hosts their rival Dayton.

Towson (1-1) vs. Wake Forest (2-0)
The Towson Tigers got off to a good start offensively ending the first quarter 14-14. However, the rest of the game didnt go as planned as the Demon Deacons went on to rout the Tigers 51-20. After an upsetting loss to an ACC opponent, Towson looks to get back on track on the road against Villanova.

Temple (0-2) vs. Buffalo (2-0)
Two DreamCatchers squared off this week as Swedish OT Isaac Moore of the Temple Owls hosted German LB Fabian Weitz of the Buffalo Bulls. It was another heart-breaking loss for the Temple Owls this week as the Bulls were able to hold on to a late seven-point lead and close out the game. Moore played every other drive in the first half, but saw less action in the second half. He confessed he was disappointed in his performance but he is determined to improve week on week as he adjusts to playing against such high calibre opposition. Temple has lost their first two games this year by a combined total of only nine points, and travel to the Big Ten to take on Maryland next week looking to get their first win of the season. The Bulls have been impressive so far this season and look to continue their winning ways as they host Eastern Michigan University next week.

Other Notable Games:
(2-0) Cincinnati 21 vs. 0 Miami(OH) (0-2)
(1-1) Rutgers 3 vs. 52 Ohio State #4 (2-0)
(0-2) Albany 26 vs. 45 Rhode Island (2-0)
(1-1) Dubuque 21 vs. 10 Pacific(OR) (0-2)
(1-1) #21 Michigan 49 vs. 3 Western Michigan (0-2)
