According to the document, UConn will travel to take on Clemson at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 11, 2021. The Huskies will receive a $1.2 million guarantee for the game, per the document.
UConn and Clemson have never met on the gridiron.
The addition of Clemson would give UConn three non-conference opponents in 2021. The Huskies are also slated to host Holy Cross on Sept. 2 and travel to UMass on Oct. 2.
Clemson would also have three non-conference opponents lined up for the 2021 season. The reigning national champions have games scheduled at home vs. Wyoming on Sept. 25 and at in-state rival South Carolina on Nov. 27.
