UConn-Fordham: A pre-game primer

We’re closing in on kickoff at Rentschler Field for the Huskies and Rams. A few items before the game begins:

— As of 10:30 a.m., there’s no word on a starting quarterback. It looks, however, like Johnny McEntee is going to get the start and will be spelled by Mike Nebrich. We’ll give you an update as soon as we know for sure.

— As expected, DE Jesse Joseph is out of action. Teddy Jennings will replace him in the starting lineup but expect to see plenty of Marcus Campbell, too.

— Don’t forget to get some expert commentary (re: sarcastic, yet attentive notes) from your truly throughout the game on twitter. Follow @NeillOstrout or glance at the feed on this page.
