UConn/Tennessee game in 2015 not happening

According to a report coming out of Tennessee, the scheduled game between Tennessee and UConn at Rentschler Field in 2015 has been "suspended."

Tennessee was supposed to play at Rentschler on Sept. 26, 2015 with the return game in Knoxville scheduled for Sept. 3, 2016.

UConn confimed the news saying in an email

"Warde (Manuel) and the Tenn AD (Dave Hart) have been in discussions about this for a few months. We have a letter from the Tenn AD agreeing that the current dates of the series will not happen and new dates will be determined by 9/26/15."

Hart met with the local media today and said he approached Manuel about redoing the dates of the home and home series so Tennessee could open the 2015 by playing a game in Nashville.

"Warde and I have had a conversation for several weeks about suspending that series so we could move forward with what we wanted to do here in Nashville," Hart said.

Tennessee announced that it would open the 2015 by playing UAB in Nashville.

Until it doesn't! Another reminder that UConn has been left behind. American = FCS.
