HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -State legislators announced a compromise Wednesday that will allow Connecticut to play a six-game football series with Notre Dame, even though none of the games will be played in Connecticut.
UConn and Notre Dame had been negotiating a 10-game series. The Fighting Irish wanted five of those games played in South Bend Ind., and the five UConn ``home'' games played at large stadiums in the New York or Boston metropolitan areas - not at the Huskies' 40,000-seat Rentschler Field.
The agreement reached between UConn and the lawmakers would run from 2011-2017, putting three games at Notre Dame, and three at sites in either Boston, New York or New Jersey. It also requires UConn to play at least six other home games during those seasons at Rentschler Field, as long as the NCAA rules permit a 12-game season and permits a team to use one Football Championship Subdivision win per season as a bowl-eligible win.
