More high-profile home games in UConn's future

Home games don't get much bigger than hosting Michigan on Saturday night in a game being televised by ABC.

However, there will be other games of note being played at Rentschler Field in the future including a Nov. 8 game against Louisville. Next year BYU and Boise State are coming into play the Huskies with Tennessee and Virginia coming to Rentschler in 2015 and 2016 respectively.

"We want, I want for our team and for our fans to bring as attractive of a schedule in the non-conference and do the things home and away to prepare our teams for the conference and to go on and be successful in our conference," UConn director of athletics Warde Manuel said. "We are going to continue to work at that, continue to try to schedule a strong schedule in the non conference, one that will prepare our team and that our fans will enjoy. That has sort of been where I am as a competitor. I want us to be able to play against top teams and to bring them here to our stadium and play more home and home against top teams when I can. It all depends on how it works out, who is available and who wants come and what dates are available."
