UConn Football Future Schedule: Huskies Announce Series with Boston College

The Huskies' non-conference schedule is now set through 2018, with one spot remaining in each of 2019 and 2020.

UConn Football officially announced a four-game series with Boston College which will start next year at BC's Alumni Stadium. It will be the first meeting on the gridiron between these two teams since Boston College left the Big East in 2004.

UConn has yet to beat Boston College at football in three attempts as a member of Division 1-A or the Football Bowl Subdivision, which is a huge point of pride for BC faithful, probably because the Eagles haven't won more than seven games in a season since 2009. The Huskies will now have four opportunities to get their first win in this series over the next eight years, and I like their chances.

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reported this development about two months ago, a few weeks after the Boston Herald reported that talks had begun. UConn had to move some things around with UMass to make it possible, but it appears that deal is set as well and will be officially announced soon.

Here is what the UConn non-conference schedule looks like going forward:

2016: Maine, Virginia, Syracuse, at Boston College

2017: Holy Cross, at Virginia, Missouri, Boston College

2018: Rhode Island, at Boise State, at Syracuse, UMass

2019: Illinois, at Indiana, at UMass (Gillette Stadium), OPEN

2020: UMass, at Illinois, Indiana, OPEN

2021: at UMass

2022: at Boston College

2023: Boston College

Unscheduled but agreed upon and looking more doubtful with each passing year to ever happen: Tennessee, at Tennessee

After making my non-conference scheduling wishlist this past summer, it's great to see Boston College officially added to the docket. Hopefully a few more from that list are in the works!
