Per the American Athletic Conference and the University of Connecticut, our 2015 football schedule was released today.

We knew the non-conference dates and who the AAC opponents are, but now we have the dates. Time to look up flights to New Orleans!

Quick Hits:
  • Diaco mentioned last season that it would be ideal to play Army and Navy in consecutive weeks. The two games will be close to each other, but separated by a road game against SEC newcomer Missouri.
  • Don't sleep on Villanova to open the season, they were a really good FCS team and return a lot of key players including star quarterback John Robertson.
  • For the first time ever, in their third year as conference mates, UConn and Houston will face-off at Rentschler Field in November.
  • The Missouri game kicks off a run where six out of the next seven opponents will be top-60 teams per Football Outsider's final 2014 rankings.
  • The first-ever AAC Championship game will be played on December 5th at the home stadium of a division winner. You may recall that the conference is now 12 teams strong and divided into two divisions, East and West.
