After seven consecutive ACC games, the Clemson football team will play its third of four non-conference games when they welcome the UConn Huskies into Death Valley in week 11 of the 2021 football season. The November 13th matchup will be the first in program history against the Huskies.
Connecticut had played in the American Conference since 2013, but starting in 2021, the Huskies will go the route of an independent schedule. The Huskies were supposed to leave the AAC in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UCONN did not play a season at all in 2020.
The Huskies don’t have an easy slate with Power Five names that include Clemson, Purdue, and Vanderbilt, as well as Houston and UCF, former AAC foes.
