UConn releases depth chart for season opener

Uconn football coach Randy Edsall released his two-deep depth chart Thursday afternoon, and there are not many surprises on the list.
As expected, redshirt junior Matt Bonislawski has been named the starting quarterback for UConn's season opener next Thursday evening against Buffalo.
Edsall did not name a definite starter at running back, and has left the option open to start either Terry Caulley or last season's Big East rushing leader, Cornell Brockington.
One small surprise has Brandon McLean starting at wide receiver and Brandon Young second on the depth chart behind Jason Williams.
Here is a look at the complete two-deep depth chart as UConn, which finished 8-4 last season and won in its first-ever bowl appearance, opens its season at Rentschler Field against Buffalo on September 1.
