The Indiana Hoosiers and the UConn Huskies have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2019 and 2020, both schools officially announced this afternoon.
Indiana will host the first game of the series at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington on Sept. 21, 2019. The Hoosiers will then travel to face the Huskies at Rentschler Field in East Hartford on Sept. 26, 2020.
“We are excited to be able to add an opponent like UConn to our schedule,” Indiana Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremy Gray said. “This addition keeps us in line with our goal of having seven home games every year and is consistent with the Big Ten’s policy that each school play at least one major conference opponent in the non-conference every season. We feel that adding UConn is great for both our fans and our program as we continue to move forward.”
The two schools have only met twice previously. UConn leads the series 2-0 after a 34-10 win at home in 2003 and a 14-7 win on the road in 2006.
The games against UConn are the first announced non-conference games for Indiana for both the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
UConn now has two non-conference games scheduled in 2019 and 2020. The Huskies are also slated to host Illinois on Sept. 7, 2019 and play at Illinois on Sept. 12, 2020.
