Most likely, but maybe Gillette would be in play.

Uconn should have Umass, Army, BC on the schedule every year.

They should write their scheduled games in pencil. With both programs being independent, they need as much schedule flexibility as they can get.

That would make sense. Uconn has Army the last game this year which also makes sense unless Army played Air Force end of year.
