UConn announced that it has agreed to a home and home series with Missouri beginning with a game on Sept. 19, 2015 at Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri with the return game set for Sept. 23, 2017 at Rentschler Field.

“We are very excited about playing a football series against Missouri as we continue to build a competitive non-conference schedule for our team and an exciting one for our loyal fans,” said UConn Director of Athletics Warde Manuel in a statement. “Our future football schedules have a number of games from various leagues around the country and I am happy to add Missouri and the Southeastern Conference  to those contests.”

UConn has a 2-2 record against current teams in the Southeastern Conference with a win over South Carolina in the 2010  Bowl and a 1-2 all-time series mark vs. Vanderbilt, including a win in 2010.
