UConn announced its attractive 2013 football schedule on Tuesday, highlighted by back-to-back nonconference home games against Maryland and Michigan in September.
The Huskies will play seven of their 12 games at home, including three to open the season and two to end it. UConn plays four nonconference games to open the season followed by eight conference games, although just what league the Huskies will play in this fall remains a mystery.
After opening the season on Aug. 29 against Towson, coached by ex-UConn offensive coordinator Rob Ambrose, the Huskies have a week off before welcoming former coach Randy Edsall and Maryland on Sept. 14 and Michigan on Sept. 21.
They play at Buffalo the following Saturday before starting conference play on Saturday, Oct. 12, at home against South Florida. UConn also plays host to Louisville, Rutgers and Memphis while visiting Central Florida, SMU and Temple. The game against Louisville will be a Friday night (Nov. 8) nationally-televised game on ESPN or ESPN2.
Times and television coverage will be announced at a later date.
