It hasn’t been a great day for some of the undefeated college football teams. Cincinnati and NC State have already gone down, and now USF football is in trouble.More disturbingly for Bulls fans, USF is in trouble against the UConn Huskies.USF has played itself up to No. 21 in the country at 6-0. They haven’t gotten as much attention as rival UCF, which ran the table last year, but have still gotten some credit.The Bulls have had some very close calls, though.USF pulled a rabbit out of a hat to beat Illinois earlier in the year, 25-19, and did it again against another bad team last week, sneaking by 1-5 Tulsa on the road 25-24.At the half tonight, USF football is tied at 7-7 with 1-5 UConn.The Huskies are, by any metric, one of the worst teams in all of FBS football. Their only win on the year came against FCS Rhode Island, and it was a close game.Let’s check in on the worst undefeated team in my ratings against the worst team in my ratings pic.twitter.com/CShI0mbU2e— Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) October 21, 2018UConn has surrendered at least 49 points in every game this year. The average score of a Huskies game this year is 53.7-20.3.There is plenty of time left. This would be a monumental upset if UConn can pull it out though.

Although the Alabama quarterback is one of the best in the country, head coach Nick Saban is having trouble finding a player that can mimic the Heisman Trophy winner’s actions during practice.When discussing the team’s recent practices, Saban said “If we had someone who could duplicate what he does, we’d be playing him.”After dedicating the first few practices to fundamentals and a camp like feel, Alabama began game prep for Oklahoma today. Nick Saban said players got fed a lot of information today. Mimicking QB Kyler Murray is difficult, though, he added. “If we had… https://t.co/hweIkfnguO— Alex Scarborough (@AlexS_ESPN) December 17, 2018Clearly Saban is very impressed with the overall skillset of Murray.The Crimson Tide usually find a way to neutralize the opponent’s top offensive weapon, but this time around might be different. Whether he’s using his arm or his legs, Murray constantly gives opposing defensive coordinators headaches.The Orange Bowl will take place on Dec. 29 from Hard Rock Stadium.Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET, as it will be broadcast on ESPN.
