Liberty adds UConn to 2022 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Liberty Flames have added the UConn Huskies to their 2022 football schedule, according to Liberty’s official athletics website.

Liberty will travel to take on the UConn Huskies at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn., on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2022.

The 2022 contest between Liberty and UConn will be their third overall meeting on the gridiron. The two schools are also scheduled to meet in East Hartford on Oct. 31, 2020 and at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Va., on Nov. 11, 2023.

In their first meeting on the gridiron, UConn defeated Liberty 59-0 in 2005 at Rentschler Field.

Liberty also made a few other changes to their football schedule in 2022. The Flames were previously scheduled to play at Florida International on Oct. 8, but that game is no longer listed and is currently not scheduled for a future season.

Liberty’s 2022 game at the UMass Minutemen has also changed dates. The Flames will now visit Amherst on Oct. 8 instead of Oct. 29, and Oct. 29 is now Liberty’s bye week that season.

Below is a look at Liberty’s revised football schedule for 2022:

  • 09/03 – at Southern Miss
  • 09/10 – UAB
  • 09/17 – at Wake Forest
  • 09/24 – Akron
  • 10/01 – at Old Dominion
  • 10/08 – at UMass
  • 10/15 – Gardner-Webb
  • 10/22 – BYU

  • 11/05 – at Arkansas
  • 11/12 – at UConn
  • 11/19 – Virginia Tech
  • 11/26 – New Mexico State

UConn now has 10 games scheduled for the 2022 season. In addition to Liberty, the Huskies are scheduled to host Central Connecticut, Syracuse, Fresno State, and Boston College.

Road opponents for UConn in 2022 include Utah State, Michigan, NC State, Ball State, and Army.

The October 8 date for Liberty @ UMass was already known, wasn’t it? I think I remember hearing about it a while ago.

U-Conn, Army, UMass, Liberty make a nice little mini conference in the Eastern Time Zone. They are only half playing each year.
