(WTNH)-Talk about a big sigh of relief for the UConn football team. This season started a lot like last year, when the Huskies opened with a close win over Villanova.

Last night, UConn had to make some big plays down the stretch to stave off an upset at the hands of FCS opponent Maine.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens between Week 1 and Week 2 for this UConn team, as there are some questions to be answered.
