(WTNH)–The UConn football team will play its sixth game on Saturday. The Huskies host Cincinnati at Rentschler Field.

After a tough loss to Houston last Thursday night, UConn really needs a win. Bob Diaco’s guys have lost three of their last four–two close games with Navy and Syracuse–before getting blown out by the sixth-ranked Cougars.

Diaco says his team needs to clean up some mistakes, but effort is not an issue.

“There is nothing that anyone can say, do, present that would add any more tume, energy, effort, intensity, passion or love to this task, on the players’ end,” Diaco said. “I wouldn’t even attempt it. They are giving everything they can give.”

Kickoff against Cincinnati is set for 11:30 a.m. in East Hartford.
