They'll need all the help they can get.

Bronco's Cougars have a 3-7 record when venturing east of the Mississippi River.

I like the idea of traveling early to acclimate but the biggest preparation should be in the heads of these kids. They need to step on the field wherever they go 'expecting to win'. Our boys looked so flat and uninspired at Virginia last year. It was like their biggest effort was in the ritual before each offensive series of huddling on the side and running in together. After that, they looked to loose in their execution of each play. The line didn't snap up and start their blocks fast enough, Taysom was slow to read and find receivers. Receivers dropped balls. Running backs didn't start fast enough off the hand-off. Basic stuff but it put together a picture that their heads weren't in the game.

We saw a different, better way of execution against Texas. Against Utah, again our boys entered their own field not looking like they expected to win.

This kind of preparation comes from the coaching staff and has to take hold with the captains of the defense and offense. These kids have to decide how badly they want to win.

UConn did lose by three points to Michigan, won their last three games, and have plenty of time to prepare for this game.

Don't over look them.
