Michigan series finalized

The University of Connecticut has finalized an agreement with the University of Michigan for a home-and-home football series in the 2010 and 2013 seasons. UConn will travel to Ann Arbor on Sept. 4, 2010 to play in Michigan Stadium while the Wolverines will come to Rentschler Field on Sept. 21, 2013 to take on the Huskies.

“It is very exciting for our football program to have a series with Michigan,” says UConn head coach Randy Edsall. “We want to challenge our team by playing a strong non-conference schedule in addition to the BIG EAST slate we face every year. Michigan is a nationally-prominent program and we are happy to have them on our future schedule.”

The contest at Michigan next season will serve as the rededication game of the historic stadium after a large-scale renovation. Connecticut’s home game with Northeastern in 2010, originally scheduled on Sept. 2, will now be played on Oct. 9.

Smart move, UConn. You couldn't beat Rich Rodriguez at West Virginia and now you schedule Michigan just when they will be getting his system down pat and his highly-touted recruits will be coming into their own. I foresee another embarrassment on national TV.
