UConn didn’t declare independence until 2020, engineering a debut schedule that it never played due to the pandemic. What sets the Huskies apart is that they’d didn’t play any games last season – choosing not to participate rather than reworking their schedule at the last minute.
What we do know is which teams UConn intended to play last year, and then, who it’s booked this season. The results tell us, at this early stage, that the Huskies intend to schedule opponents from across the nation. Though games vs. fellow independents lead the way with five matchups, they’ve booked games with three members apiece from the ACC, Conference USA, and Mountain West. The only leagues not represented thus far are the Big 12, MAC, Pac-12 and Sun Belt, two of which will be crossed off the list with future games vs. the MAC’s Ball State (2022/2025) and Buffalo (2024/2025, 2028/2029) and the Sun Belt’s Georgia State (2023/24). <-
