UConn has finalized its 2021 football schedule, the school announced on Thursday.
UConn previously had 11 of their 12 games announced and added the final piece of the puzzle on Thursday. That piece will be the Houston Cougars visiting Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn., on Saturday, Nov. 27.
UConn is scheduled to open the 2021 season in Week Zero on Saturday, Aug. 28 on the road against the Fresno State Bulldogs. Their first home contest of the season is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 4 against the Holy Cross Crusaders (previously scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 4).
Other home opponents for UConn in 2021 include Purdue, Wyoming, Yale, and Middle Tennessee. Road opponents include Army, Vanderbilt, UMass, Clemson, and UCF, in addition to the opener at Fresno State.
UConn’s schedule in 2021 will be unique in that they will have consecutive open dates on Oct. 30 and Nov. 6. Playing in Week Zero is a partial reason for that.
Below is UConn’s complete 2021 football schedule, which will be updated with kickoff times and TV as the season approaches:
- 08/28 – at Fresno State
