UMass one of six MAC teams in action tonight.

Obligatory uniform report: UMass in white jerseys, maroon pants, black helmet. UConn in navy jerseys/hemlets, white pants.

I think black pants would look better with the black UMass helmets #fashionpolice

RT @LTorbin: Agree 100% Big believer that if a team has a dark helmet and white jersey, pants should match the helmet. Better balance.

Best pre-game jumbotron gimmick I've seen: Oklahoma's ignorance cam. They put people on there and time how long it takes them to notice.

No such fun here at Rentschler. Although I have seen multiple people in the stands reading...

According to P.A. Iric Harris is starting at strong safety over Birt and Saint-Vil. He's not on the UMass two-deep
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:02 GazetteUMass
7:02
And we're just told that Iric Harris is starting at strong safety. Not listed on depth....
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:02 HarryPlumer
7:03
This would be shocking, if true. Wonder if something happened to starter Christian Birt and backup Ed Saint-Vil.
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:03 HarryPlumer
7:04
UMass SS Christian Birt has an undisclosed injury
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:04 GazetteUMass

Birt is hurt. Saw him at practice w/o shoulder pads on earlier this week, but was never told whether he would play or not.

Ed Saint-Vil will still back up Harris. He is fine, we're told.

@AndyBremmen I had that plus an hour to get to 91 from Amherst.

This UMass-UConn game should have honorary captains. Former players on each side of this revivalry for the coin flip.

Predictiton time: #UMass leading rusher: Leading receiver: Leading tackler: I'll take Cox, Sharpe and Greg Hilliard
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:29 GazetteUMass

UConn takes the field flanked by legitimate flaming torches. No smoke machines here.

@sonofLargeMark Clearly I need a new picture.

UConn wins toss and defers.

Chaz Thompson, Chris Burns UMass' game captains for tonight.

UConn wins toss. defers. UMass will receive

And so it begins... Jordan Broadnax back to return opening kick. Not Cox as listed on two-deep.
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:35 HarryPlumer
7:36
Underway, #UMass will start its drive at its own 20.
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:36 HarryPlumer
7:38
Wegzyn to Michel underneath on 3rd and long, not enough. Some serious pass interference on 2nd down tho.
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:38 HarryPlumer

Good punt by Strait reverses the field, UConn will start at its own 25. Saint Vil with a nice tackle on punt.
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:39 HarryPlumer
7:39
Saint Vil did start at safety
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:39 GazetteUMass
7:40
Saint Vil in on first play at safety, not Iric Harris... thought that sounded weird before game.
Thursday August 30, 2012 7:40 HarryPlumer
7:46
In first nickel package of the night, Iric Harris comes in as the nickel back.

A LOT of motion from this #UConn offense. Not surprised they ended up with a false start. 1st and goal from just outside the 10 for Huskies

Whitmer perfect on first drive (3-3), and McCombs scores from the 1
