Sept. 24, 6 p.m., SNY
Series history: UConn leads, 14-4
To win, UConn must: Force turnovers, as Buffalo threw 23 interceptions and lost 10 fumbles last season.
Keep an eye on: Buffalo's pass defense. The Bulls allowed 181.4 yards per game, second in the MAC, and a 53.8 completion percentage -- the best in the conference.
Oct. 1, 3:30 p.m., SNY
2010: 6-6, 5-3 MAC
Series history: UConn leads, 1-0
To win, UConn must: Play a quality game. The Broncos are expected to be among the contenders for the MAC title and will certainly be a player in the West Division.
Keep an eye on: Junior quarterback Alex Carder, whose strong arm makes him one of the best at his position in the conference.
At West Virginia
Oct. 8, noon, SNY
2010: 9-4, 5-2 Big East
Series history: West Virginia leads, 6-1
To win, UConn must: Not be overwhelmed. The Huskies have historically fared poorly in Morgantown and are likely to face one of the nation's flashiest offenses.
Keep an eye on: Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith, a junior who should benefit from coach Dana Holgorsen's flashy pass-happy offense.
