Joseph Fagnano QB vs. Darren Grainger QB

When we delve deeper into the quarterback matchup, the disparity becomes quite evident. UConn’s Joseph Fagnano had a lackluster showing, completing only 53.8% of his attempts for a meager 113 passing yards. His 82.7 passer rating was uninspiring, to say the least. Sacked twice and throwing an interception, Fagnano will need to drastically improve if the Huskies are to stand any chance.


In contrast, Georgia State’s Darren Grainger had a stellar outing. Completing 80% of his passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns, Grainger had a passer rating of an astronomical 194.1. Perhaps the most impressive statistic is the zero in the sack and interception columns. Grainger’s adeptness in the pocket and quick decision-making skills make him a force to be reckoned with.
