What you need to know: UConn is struggling with depth as injuries have mounted in the early weeks of the season. Now the Huskies will head into the most difficult game on its schedule. No. 4 Michigan will be a significant step up from Syracuse, which defeated UConn 48-14 last Saturday. Mora will take the field against Jim Harbaugh for the first time in their careers. UConn faces a daunting challenge with Michigan favored by 47.5 points. Huskies running back Nate Carter will be the player to watch for UConn, as he has been the team’s top offensive weapon. Carter currently ranks third in the FBS in total rushing yards with 385 and ranks second among all running backs with at least 50 carries in yards per carry with 6.5. Michigan has allowed just 8.5 points per game while scoring over 50 in both of its first two matchups.
