STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut and Tennessee's rivalry is moving from the basketball court to the football field.
Connecticut announced Thursday that Tennessee will visit Rentschler Field in East Hartford in 2015, and the Huskies will travel to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville the following year.
The two women's basketball powers had met annually, until Tennessee canceled the series a year ago. The schools' football teams don't have quite the same pedigree.
Tennessee won the 1998 national championship in football and has 13 Southeastern Conference titles to its credit. UConn is beginning its sixth season in the Bowl Championship subdivision, and is coming off a 9-4 season and its first Big East co-championship.
