UConn football’s future schedules likely to include AAC teams

With UConn set to leave the AAC and begin football independence after this season, it looked like Saturday’s meeting with UCF might be the final game of the storied ConFLiCT rivalry.

But the legend isn’t going down without a fight.

“We’ve had discussions with UCF (about scheduling),” Randy Edsall said in his weekly press conference.

While the Knights are in a (football) class far above the Huskies’ right now, a scheduling agreement would help both sides. In the short-term, UConn needs to fill eight games for next season and UCF may need to add an extra non-conference game as well depending on how the AAC schedule changes with the Huskies’ departure.
