Zach Frazier has some big shoes to fill and i mean some big shoes to fill.  On Sunday Uconn officially announced starting quarterback Cody Endres had season ending shoulder surgery.  Endres ranked 16th in college football in passing efficiency, throwing for 1354 yards 6 touchdowns and just four interceptions to go with a 63.6% completion percentage.  When you watch Zach Frazier it is obvious he is a rhythm quarterback when he's bad hes gonna turn the ball over but when he is on watch out it could be a long night for the opposing defense.  So far Frazier has struggled this season throwing for 554 yards 3 touchdowns, 7 interceptions to go along with a 48.3% completion percentage.  As you can see there seems to be a big drop off between Endres and Frazier.  Head Coach Randy Edsall has shown great confidence in Frazier this week saying that when Frazier is good and will be good as long as he doesn't try to do too much.  We all saw a glimpse of what Zach Frazier can do in the fourth quarter against Rutgers looking very good in 2 scoring drives while throwing for a TD, the big question is which Frazier will we see Saturday and the rest of the way?  The way he plays may very well determine if Uconn will be playing a thirteenth game or if they will be watching the games from Connecticut.
