The UConn Huskies are one of the most underrated stories of the season in college football in what was an incredible coaching job from Jim Mora Jr. UConn hadn’t won more than three games since 2015 and is in a bowl game for the first time since that season. Starting quarterback Ta’Quan Roberson was injured in the first game of the season, and Zion Turner completed 60.6% of his passes for 1,241 yards with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The Marshall Thundering Herd closed the season winning four straight for a solid season under second-year head coach Charles Huff. The Herd had arguably their biggest win in program history when they defeated then No. 8 Notre Dame, 26-21, in South Bend. Running back Khalan Laborn was among the nation’s best this season, rushing for 1,423 yards and 16 touchdowns.
