NFL Draft

UConn becomes the first FBS team to cancel football

Kevin Mensah
UConn RB Kevin Mensah will be hurt by the Huskies decision to cancel the 2020 football season.

UConn went independent last month, and now they are shutting down their football program for the season.

Yesterday, we posted a tweet that we were hearing rumblings of the team cancelling their season. After going 2-10 in their final season in the AAC before becoming independent the team will take a year off.

This is a huge blow for several players on their team. Kevin Mensah is a beast for UConn, and is the first running back to have back to back seasons rushing since 2011 when Lyle McCombs eclipsed the 1000 yard mark. \

Some others who will suffer largely from this decision is Brian Keating, Ryan Van Demark, Omar Fortt, Jay Rose, DJ Morgan and Tahj Herring-Wilson. All are headed into their senior year. I feel Mensah in company could be willing to declare. We will see, you could see some enter the transfer portal.
