UMass football seeking some sort of spark

AMHERST — If there’s one thing the 0-8 Minutemen would like on Saturday — other than a win, of course — it’s a first-half visit to the end zone.

In its last two games, UMass (0-8, 0-4 Mid-American Conference) hasn’t scored in the first half. It is probably no coincidence that it was outscored in those two games, 73-7. The Minutemen’s last first-half touchdown came Oct. 6 during a 52-14 loss to Western Michigan.
