Could this really be a big season for UConn football?

(WTNH)–Two weeks from today, the UConn football team will open its 2015 season against FCS opponent Villanova. On Thursday, they got a dress rehersal at Rentschler Field.

First things first, it was picture day for the Huskies. Coaches and players all dressed up for a photo. After the team picture, the Huskies scrimmaged for a little bit, still trying to work out the kinks on both sides of the ball.

UConn is trying to improve on last season’s 2-10 campaign.

“Everybody’s just buying in a little bit more, everybody’s just pushing a little bit harder, and we’re working as a team running to the ball and just rallying as a team,” said safety Obi Melifonwu.
