Original thread here.

Men's Soccer: The Huskies fell to #5 in the nation following a tough week.That's still pretty good though. Tonight, they will face off with Marquette in their final home game of the year, at 7:30 PM. The Huskies are currently in second place in the Blue Division, four points behind the Golden Eagles and one ahead of Georgetown and Providence. Remember, the top two in each Division get byes, so this is a crucial game for the Huskies. It can be heard on WHUS or seen on the UConnHuskies All-Access.

Football: The Huskies will head to Pittsburgh at 8:00 PM tonight. That game will be on ESPN. That's right, folks. A football game on a Wednesday Night! Why on earth would you want to do that? Oh wait, I know... Money! Because ESPN likes exploiting student athletes so they can put their football games on TV. They don't care if Pitt students can't go to games because they have class the next day. As long as they're getting money (and they are), they keep doing it. Crazy. But that's the way it is. Also, the Syracuse-UConn game on November 5th will start at noon on ESPNU.

Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies will face Holy Cross at home tomorrow at 7:05. You can look GameTracker on the Huskies website or paid video is available too shortly. The Huskies are 2-2-1 this year and 1-0-0 in AHA. The Huskies will also host Army on October 29th at 7:05.

Here we go again. Heading into a big weekend, here is today's roundup. The original post can be found here

Men's Soccer: In a crucial Blue Division matchup, the Huskies defeated Marquette, 3-0. The Huskies are now 14-1-2 on the season. Allando Matheson opened the scoring and Mamadou Doudou Diouf added two more as UConn rolled to victory. This pulls us within one point of the Golden Eagles for first place in the Blue Division. If we can beat Seton Hall Saturday night, then with a Golden Eagles loss or tie to Pittsburgh, we will win the Blue Division outright. A win would earn us a first-round bye and a home quarterfinal as the #2 see regardless of what Marquette does. The game vs. the Pirates gets underway at 7:30 PM and will be on WHUS. The Golden Eagles will host Pitt at 8:05 Eastern, or 7:05 PM CT local. And really, we should beat Seton Hall. They're 0-7-0 in Big East play. Then again, they did manage a scoreless tie with Maryland. This could be a trap. Update: According to the Seton Hall athletic website, the game will now start at 1:00 PM. It should still be on WHUS, though I have not confirmed tis.

Football: An ugly loss for the Huskies last night, falling 38-20 to Pittsburgh. So much for turning this season around. We now fall to 3-5 overall and 1-2 in Big East Play. In order to get to a bowl, we will need to get through Syracuse, Louisville, Rutgers, and Cincinnati with at most one loss. Not happening. This season is likely over for us.

Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies will play their first home game of the year tonight when Atlantic Hockey foe Holy Cross comes to Freitas Ice Forum at 7:05 PM. The action will continue Saturday night at 7:05 as they face Army at home. Currently, UConn is 2-2-1 and 1-0-0 in AHA play.

Field Hockey: The Huskies will look to clinch the Big East regular season title outright tomorrow at 3:00 PM when they face Rutgers. Gametracker will be available on Rutgers' website, but no webcast. The Huskies will rhen face Princeton on Sunday at 2:00 PM to wrap up the regular season.

Baseball: Just a reminder, the tentative 2012 baseball schedule is up on my site here.
