UConn announces 2013 schedule
UConn announced its 2013 schedule including the dates for the non-conference games.
The Huskies will kick off the season by hosting Towson University on Aug. 29, which is one of seven home games for UConn. The highlight of the home schedule will be a September 21 game against Michigan. That comes a week after former UConn head coach Randy Edsall returns to Rentschler Field when his Maryland squad plays the Huskies. UConn's lone non-conference road game is on Sept. 28 against Buffalo.
UConn will also play home games against Big East foes Louisville, Rutgers, San Diego State and South Florida while the conference road games will be against Central Florida, Cincinnati, Southern Methodist and Temple.
UConn will play in the East Division of the Big East along with Central Florda, Cincinnati, Louisville, Rutgers and South Florida. Boise State, Houston, Memphis, San Diego State, SMU and Temple will be in the West Division. The dates of the Big East games will be announced at a later date.
Right now the list of games on the 2013 schedule is about the only certainty in the Big East at the current time. Not only will Louisville and Rutgers, two of the four teams which earned a share of the Big East title during the 2012 season, leave for the ACC and Big 10 respectively but there are multiple reports that the Big East schools who do not play FBS football have discussed leaving the conference with the Atlantic 10 reported to be a potential landing spot.
