UConn and Cincinnati both need a win Saturday to avoid an 0-3 start in the American Athletic Conference.

Both also are looking for big improvements at key offensive positions.

The Huskies (2-3, 0-2 American) come into their game with the Bearcats (3-2, 0-2) averaging just 350 yards a game, which ranks 104th among the 128 Bowl Subdivision teams. That includes just 124 yards per game on the ground.
