Looks like a UConn/BC game could happen next year

According to reports coming from the UMass football media, changes to the series between UMass and UConn have been made leaving a spot in UConn's 2016 schedule which seems likely to be filled by Boston College.

According to a tweet by Matt Vantour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette who spoke to UMass AD Ryan Bamford, the 2016 game between UConn and UMass has been dropped from the schedule but the teams are slated to play every season between 2018-21 with the games in '18 and '20 at Gillette Stadium and the contests in '19 and '21 at Rentschler Field.

Bamford: UMass-BC '16 now at Gillette. UConn '16 dropped but teams will play in 18, 20 at Storrs and 19, 21-Gillette,

Talks between UConn and Boston College have intensified in recent weeks and according to Mark Blaudschun, all parties have signed off on the deal to set up a non-conference series. His report stated that the teams will play at BC in November of 2016 with the return game in East Hartford in 2017.

Boston College leads the series between the teams 10-0-2 with the ties coming in 1908 and 1910. More recently, the teams played each season from 2002-04 with BC winning 24-16 in 2002, 24-14 in 2003 and 27-7 in 2004 in the most recent meeting.
