STORRS, Conn. -- Former Big East foes UConn and Syracuse meet Saturday for the first time since 2012.And while a matchup of the two national basketball powers once elicited excitement on campus no matter the sport, its being treated this week as just another non-conference game.Is it really still a rivalry? asked UConn coach Bob Diaco, who is in his third year in Storrs. You guys have a much better perspective of that than I do here. I think its an exciting matchup of local-like teams and universities.Its also a matchup of vastly contrasting styles.UConn (2-1) is a methodical team that runs about 66 plays a game and puts up an average of 330 yards of offense. It wants to win games by controlling field position and time of possession. It is built, Diaco said, to keep games close. The Huskies three games this season have been decided by a total of 10 points.Syracuse (1-2), under first-year-coach Dino Babers, runs the fastest-paced offense in college football, with an average of 93 snaps and 505 yards offense. They ran a school-record 105 plays a week ago.Its like defending two games, Diaco said.The Orange, who will be playing their first road game this season, are trying to bounce back from back-to-back double-digit losses Louisville (62-28) and South Florida (45-20).As we grow together, well get better and better at it, said Babers.Here are some other things to watch for as UConn hosts Syracuse:DOG TIREDDiaco said hes concerned that Syracuses hurry-up tempo could be dangerous if he is unable to get fatigued defenders off the field. He said there is nothing he can do tactically to slow down the pace of the game and would never coach a player to fake an injury just to stop play. But he said exhaustion is a real possibility if his team is unable to substitute. Mikal Myers, UConns 325-pound defensive tackle, said he and his teammates feel they are physically ready for the challenge. Strength and conditioning coach Matt Balis kills us all summer, so hopefully in translates to the game on Saturday, he said.RECEIVERSThe game features two of the nations top wide receivers. Syracuses Amba Etta-Tawo , a graduate transfer from Maryland, has 28 catches for 436 yards and three touchdowns. He leads the Atlantic Coast Conference and ranks third nationally in receiving yards per game (145.3), and his 9.3 receptions per game are tied for fourth in the Football Bowl Subdivision. UConns Noel Thomas has 26 catches (seventh nationally) for 277 yards. No other Husky receiver has more than seven catches.BABERS-QUARTERBACK SUCCESSSyracuse quarterback Eric Dungey is has already thrown for 960 yards this season. Hes hoping to follow in the footsteps of other signal callers who have done well in Babers high-octane offense. One of those guys is Jimmy Garoppolo. The New England Patriots quarterback played under Babers at Eastern Illinois, where he threw for 8,873 yards and 84 touchdowns over two seasons.GOING FOR ITSyracuse has attempted to convert nine fourth downs already this season and has been successful five times. The Orange have punted the ball 19 times. UConn is 3 for 3 in fourth-down conversion attempts.SERIESUConn has won six of the nine meetings between the programs, which all occurred between 2004 and 2012, when both were members of the Big East. The Orange beat the Huskies 40-10 in their last game, which was played at the Carrier Dome. Syracuse has never beaten the Huskies in Connecticut. Wholesale Clippers Jerseys .

But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. CLEVELAND -- Aroldis Chapmans footwork was more important than his fastball with the game on the line Thursday night.Chapman -- sprinting to cover first base with two on and two outs in the ninth inning -- beat Tyler Naquin to the bag by a split-second and preserved the Yankees 5-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians.The speedy Naquin hit a shot toward the hole that first baseman Mark Teixeira dived at, then deflected toward second baseman Starlin Castro, who rifled it to Chapman in full stride.Umpire Tom Hallion initially ruled Naquin safe to load the bases, but the call was overturned on a game-ending challenge by New York manager Joe Girardi.I thought the ball was by (Teixeira), but he made a great play for us, Chapman said through an interpreter. I felt the guy was out all along, but we had to wait on the call.Didi Gregorius had two hits and scored twice for the Yankees, who are 3-4 on their 10-game trip. The veteran shortstop hit his career-high 10th home run.Chase Headley added two singles and drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth, while Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury had two hits and an RBI apiece.American League Central leader Cleveland lost its second straight home game after winning 13 in a row at Progressive Field.I think we kind of knew that call at the end was going against us, Indians manager Terry Francona said. You kind of brace for it.Girardi felt the same way, as did the thousands of Yankees fans who celebrated loudly when the announcement was made.Chappy can make that play because hes a great athlete, Girardi said. Thats why you work on it every day. I was a little worried when he hit it, but Tex made a great play to keep it in there.New York right-hander Ivan Nova (6-5) stopped a two-game losing streak and earned his first road victory since June 3, against Baltimore. He struck out six in 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs, in the opener of the four-game series.ddddddddddddellin Betances and Andrew Miller followed and combined for 2 2/3 scoreless frames. Chapman gave up a single and a walk in the ninth before picking up his 17th save, hitting 100 mph on 16 of his 28 pitches.You want to get our bullpen the lead because if you do, its almost a sure win, Nova said. It was good tonight because we beat a team thats in first place.The Yankees scored three times in the sixth to take a 5-2 lead. Headley and Ellsbury had RBI singles, while Rob Refsnyder delivered a sacrifice fly that chased Indians starter Trevor Bauer (7-3).Naquin and Jason Kipnis homered in the third to give Cleveland a 2-0 lead. New York tied the game in the fifth when Gregorius went deep and Gardner had an RBI single.A-ROD UPDATEYankees DH Alex Rodriguez, who has 695 career home runs, was not in the lineup for the second straight game. The three-time AL MVP is batting .220 with eight homers and 28 RBI in 50 games. Its been a struggle, especially against right-handers, for him, Girardi said. Alex has been doing it for a long time and hes been a very productive hitter. Its not easy.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: DH Carlos Beltran (right hamstring tightness) did not play the field as Girardi attempts to manage his injury. Beltran was initially hurt on June 29, against Texas.Indians: RHP Zach McAllister (right hip discomfort) was placed on the 15-day DL. He allowed four runs in 1/3 of an inning Wednesday in a 12-2 loss to Detroit.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Chad Green earned his first major league win in his last outing, going six innings in a July 3 start at San Diego.Indians: RHP Corey Kluber is 1-1 with a 2.65 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees. He last faced them on Aug. 9, 2014.
