If the Huskies leave Waldo Stadium with a win, no easy task, they return home to play another MAC team (Buffalo, the third such opponent the Huskies will face) with a good chance of going 4-1 in non-conference games. The Huskies were 2-3 after five games last season, and that fifth game was a 38-31 loss to the Broncos at Rentschler Field in which QB Alex Carder Carder [pictured] tossed a touchdown strike in the last two minutes. The Huskies finished 5-7 in 2011. A 4-1 start could lead to bigger and better things once Big East play begins, but the Huskies can¿t get there until they go 3-1. Thus, the need for focus from start to finish on both sides of the ball.
