Syracuse football schedules very manageable future series with UConn

Syracuse football has scheduled a very manageable future series with UConn. Here are the details and why this is good news for the Orange.

Syracuse football and UConn will be renewing their rivalry and series it was announced in a joint press release.

The two squads have come to an agreement that they’ll play four times between 2022 and 2027. Here’s how it breaks down: the Orange will welcome UConn to the dome on September 6, 2025, and additionally on October 3, 2026.

While on the other side of the coin the Huskies will host Syracuse on September 10, 2022, and also on November 6, 2027.

“We look forward to our four-game series with UConn,” Syracuse Director of Athletics John Wildhack said via the press release. “This is a game our fans have always embraced, both at the Dome and in Connecticut, where we have a strong alumni concentration.”

Since 2004, these two teams have played 11 times with UConn holding the slight edge 6-to-5 in the series. Although the Orange have had the Huskies number recently winning three in a row including the most recent matchup when Syracuse annihilated UConn 51-21 back in 2018.

This future series is great news for the Orange.

UConn has been absolute dog meat recently. As a matter of fact, the Huskies haven’t had a winning season in a decade. The last time UConn was above .500 was back in 2010 (8-5), since then they’re 30-79 overall under four different head coaches.

While some Syracuse fans crave better competition, we witnessed in 2019 that the Orange isn’t quite ready for the big leagues. This team has to do its work in the non-conference and you have to imagine that the ACC will be back to normal strength by 2022.
