UConn and UMass Schedule Four-Game Series
UConn and UMass previously had a scheduled series which would have sent the Huskies to Gilette Stadium in 2016, with future dates to be announced.That series is now cancelled, as UMass has accommodated UConn so that the Huskies could add a home-and-home with Boston College to the schedule for 2016 and 2017. The Minutemen will visit Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in 2018 and 2020 and UConn will travel to Gillette Stadium in 2019 and 2021. With UMass, Boston College and UConn all playing each other a handful of times in the coming years, UMass athletic director Ryan Bramford says the three schools are making progress in "advancing the culture of college football in New England." UMass will need all the scheduling help it can get, as the football program will be an FBS independent in 2016 after four years in the MAC.
