Texas Southern replaces Northeastern on 2010 sked

UConn has replaced Northeastern with Texas Southern on the 2010 schedule. It shouldn't be much of a game for the Huskies. Texas Southern, a member of the SWAC, was 6-5 this fall. It played two FBS opponents in Louisiana-Monroe and Rutgers and lost by a combined score of 100-0. One notable TSU alum: Michael Strahan.

Here's the UConn press release.

The University of Connecticut has announced that Texas Southern University (Houston, Texas) of the Southwestern Athletic Conference has been added to its 2010 non-conference football schedule, replacing Northeastern University. The game, UConn’s home opener, will be played on Sept. 11 at Rentschler Field. Connecticut was originally scheduled to play Northeastern on that day, but four weeks ago the institution announced it would no longer sponsor a football team.

Connecticut ’s other non-conference dates for 2010 are: Saturday, Sept. 4, at Michigan; Saturday, Sept. 18, at Temple (Lincoln Financial Field); Saturday, Sept. 25, vs. Buffalo at Rentschler Field; Saturday, October 2, vs. Vanderbilt at Rentschler Field.
