Now reading the latest in Colleges News Southern Methodist Mustangs wide receiver Courtland Sutton (16) celebrates with running back Ke'Mon Freeman (13) after scoring a touchdown during the second quarter of a game between Arkansas State and SMU on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at Ford Stadium on the SMU campus in Dallas.
For UConn, the Huskies just need to get back on track after a 41-38 loss to a spiraling East Carolina team.
As mentioned above, the run game has been a weakness for UConn, so that puts pressure on quarterback Bryant Shirreffs.
This leaves three freshmen at the top of the wide receiver depth chart, including walk-on Mason Donaldson.
If SMU, the fifth-best scoring offense in the FBS, can get a big enough lead, then receivers like Alex Honey and Brandon Benson may get a chance to play some late in the game, too.
