UConn women’s basketball renews series with longtime rival Tennessee

UConn women’s basketball’s rivalry with Tennessee will carry on for at least two more seasons.

On Friday, the Huskies announced a home-and-home series with the Vols through 2022-23. UConn will host Tennessee this upcoming season (date and location were not announced) before making the return trip to Nashville the year after.

Once the biggest rivalry in the sport, UConn and Tennessee played 20 times between 1995 and 2007, including seven times in the Final Four. The Huskies defeated the Vols in the national title game in 1995, 2000, 2003, and 2004 and the Final Four in 2002.
