Early tests highlight UConn's AAC schedule
The combined 2015 record of UConn's first four conference opponents is 39-14.
It begins on Sept. 10 when the Huskies play at Navy. The Midshipmen lost many of its offensive playmakers to graduation including star quarterback Keenan Reynolds so perhaps getting to play Navy that early in the season could be a blessing for the Huskies.
Then on Sept. 29 comes a game at Houston that I would think the Cougars will be ready for since the only thing which kept Houston from a perfect season was a stunning loss at UConn.
The Huskies will host Cincinnati on Oct. 8 and play at USF on Oct. 15. That will be followed by a home game against Central Florida on Oct. 22, a road contest against East Carolina on Oct. 29 and then a Nov. 4 home game against Temple. The Huskies will wrap up the regular season by hosting Tulane on Nov. 26.
It was previously announced that the Huskies would host Maine on Nov. 1, Virginia on Nov. 17 and Syracuse on Nov. 24 before wrapping up its non-conference schedule with a Nov. 19 game at Boston College.
UConn returns every offensive player who started in the St. Petersburg Bowl as well as six of the top eight tacklers from one of the best defenses in the conference.
