This uniform is about as generic as it gets -- all navy at home, a white shirt and all-navy pants on the road. Luckily, there's a white stripe down the front to break up the monotony. Actually, this uni resembles Maine from this era, only without the kick-arse winged helmet. Or a reverse-image Penn State.
This was the Huskies' last uniform before they spiced it up with gold pants, a look they used well into the 1960s.

It's a good thing Maine's unis have the striped helmets and jerseys, or I'd still
be trying to figure out which team is which.

but "A .500 SEASON" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
UConn had some far more exciting-looking uniforms in 1940s, which we'll have to delve into eventually (patience ...).
