First and foremost, you go to college to get an education. If you play sports, you’re still there for getting an education.
That is the priority.
But as a member of a collegiate sports team, you also have the chance to play for a championship, bowl game and/or individual awards depending on the sport.
The last time the UConn Huskies football team went to a bowl game was the 2011 Fiesta Bowl where they lost to Oklahoma. Since then, the UConn hasn’t had a winning record.
Under head coach Bob Diaco, the UConn football team has improved ten-fold and is on the cusp of becoming bowl eligible as they sit at 4-5. It won’t be easy though as two of the final three opponents are against teams ranked in the top 25 of the College Football Playoff poll (Houston and Temple).
A win this weekend over Tulane would get the UConn football team one win way.
