Herald: Matt Sparks puts it on the line for UMass

John Connolly of the Boston Herald has a look at center Matt Sparks and his journey from Hawaii to Massachusetts to be a member of the Minutemen. Sparks who played guard last year, has settled in nicely at center and helped solidify what many expect to be a much improved offensive line this year.

UMass had 59 offensive snaps Saturday, including 29 rushing attempts, and did not permit a single tackle for a loss. At center, Sparks was forced to handle Wisconsin's highly regarded nose tackle Beau Allen and Sparks limited the Badgers' star to two solo tackles.
