The Army Black Knights will be looking to continue their resurgent run of form when they face the struggling UConn Huskies on Saturday at noon. The Huskies have struggled from the outset, including suffering two shutout defeats.
Huskies battered and bruised early
The Huskies have simply struggled for any fluency or momentum this season. They have fallen to three straight losses, two of which were shutout defeats. One of them was this last weekend in a 49-0 defeat to Purdue.
“Not where it needs to be. There’s a lot of things I can do better and cleaner,” Steven Krajewski said about his performance. “I’ll get better. My teammates will get better, the coaching will get better."
Steven Krajewski got his first career start in the previous game, completing 14 of his 25 passes for 99 yards. His rushing performance was okay, with average yardage per carry of below 4 yards (42 yards in 11 rushing attempts).

Army survive resurgent rally from WKUSeason form
The Black Knights have made a solid start to their season, putting up successive wins to open. They have scored 81 points so far, including a tight 38-35 win in the previous game against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.
As reported by AP: Jeff Monken’s 51st win at Army ties Jim Young for third all-time at the academy. It was also the Black Knights' 11th straight home win. They were unbeaten in eight games at Michie Stadium last season when only West Point personnel and the cadets were allowed to attend because of COVID-19.
Christian Anderson had a solid game, rushing for 119 yards, a career-high, along with a touchdown. His passing tally is now 117 yards with two touchdowns while his rushing tally is 174 yards on 37 carries in the option offense.
