What the future holds (so far)


UConn’s future non-conference football schedules to date. Note the Towson game in 2013, the return of Rob Ambrose. Don't expect big-name opponents to fill open dates in 2011 and 2012, as there are already two BCS games scheduled and Edsall has been adamant UConn won't play three in a single season after this fall.

Sept. 4: at Michigan
Sept. 18: at Temple
Sept. 25: vs. Buffalo
Oct. 2: vs. Vanderbilt
Oct. 9: vs. Northeastern

Sept. 3: vs. Fordham
Sept. 10: at Vanderbilt
Sept. 17: vs. Iowa State
Sept. 24: at Buffalo
one open date

Aug. 30: vs. UMass
Sept. 8: vs. North Carolina State
Sept. 15: at Maryland
Sept 29: vs. Buffalo
one open date

Aug. 31: vs. Towson
Sept. 7: vs. Maryland
Sept. 14: at Buffalo
Sept. 21: vs. Michigan
Sept. 28: vs. Temple


Sept. 26: vs. Tennessee

Sept. 3: at Tennessee

Any word on the Notre Dame series? It sounded like both ADs were hinting at a compromise like 1 home game at the Rent for 1 at Foxboro. But then the Syracuse deal just got announced so maybe the UConn deal is just plain ol' dead.

No word, Sean, but I just don't think that it's going to happen any time soon.

Who knows? Mabye to start filling in the 2014 schedule, they'll need to bite the bullet on a major confernce opponent in one of those open dates in 2011 or 2012. I know that the athletes are #1, but fans are #2 and we'd rather see them round out the schedule with a Texas A & M or a Clemson than a Toledo or an East Carolina.
