UConn finalizes 2020 football schedule

By Brian Wilmer -

UConn has finalized its 2020 football schedule, the school announced Monday.

Games announced as part of the release include home contests against Conference USA foes Old Dominion (October 3) and Middle Tennessee (November 21), with a road contest at North Carolina’s Kenan Stadium set for November 7.

The Huskies will take the field as an FBS independent in 2020. UConn’s home schedule include the ODU and MTSU contests, along with tilts against UMass (September 3), Indiana (September 26), Maine (October 10), Liberty (October 31), and Army (November 28). UConn will travel to Illinois (September 12), Virginia (September 19), Ole Miss (October 24), and San Jose State (November 14), as well as the North Carolina contest.

Old Dominion will receive a $200,000 guarantee for its trip to East Hartford, with no guarantee to the Blue Raiders. UConn will itself receive $200,000 from North Carolina for the trip to Chapel Hill.

You have to hand it to UConn to make that 2020 schedule happen. However, they had to pay for it. Likely that will be the same in 2021.

And UConn beat AF and UAB in announcing a completed 2020 schedule.

FCS programs still needing an 2020 game with FBS program:

Sam Houston St
Tennessee St
Sacred Heart
Delaware St
South Carolina St
Southern
MVSU

(Lehigh’s schedule is full)

I am sure that was tough couple of months for the AD. 4 Power 5 Schools, maybe Virginia and or Illinois will be ranked next year when they play them, but it will be interesting to see in future years if they choose to stick in the U-Mass Army Liberty level of Group of 5 and lower independent teams or do they reach out and try to schedule 6 or 7 Power 5 opponents like BYU?

I see a lot of Army on the 10 year schedule but no other team appears a whole lot. U-Mass seems like a natural rival.

UMass and UConn should end their seasons playing each other.

Possibly even a HaH.

I would have them play each other championship week. That would make scheduling easier with more bye weeks in the season.

UConn’s AD appears to have worked on hard on this. What stood out to me was that they got Middle Tennessee to go to Hartford without a guarantee. My guess is that UConn must have promised Middle a portion of its guarantee for going to Mississippi in place of Middle. Well done, but I still don’t see how the money works out, as the real money is in TV Football contracts and UConn won’t have anything to compare with what it had in the AAC.
