The Connecticut Huskies look to go 4-0 to start the season as they host the Baylor Bears on Friday night.  This nationally televised game on ESPN 2 should have some offense in it as Baylor is coming off a game in which they scored 45 points in a win against Washington State while Connecticut scored 45 points in their rout of Virginia last week.  SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Connecticut at Home.


Connecticut has won its last five night games at Rentschler Field and boasts an all-time mark of 9-3 “under the lights” at Rentschler. UConn has won seven of its last eight non-conference games overall and will be a tough matchup for Baylor. “They are a good football team. They went 9-4 last year, won the Big East and went to a bowl game.” Baylor head coach Art Briles said, “They have 19 of 22 starters back. They are 26-8 at home over the last four years and they have won the last 8 or 9 in a row. They are a tough team.”   Baylor has turned things around somewhat this season under Briles. They routed Washington State last week as freshman Robert Griffin set a school record with 217 yards rushing.  He also passed for 129 yards in the win.
