Fans will have to wait to learn when the UConn football teamâ€™s game on Saturday, Nov. 4, against South Florida at Pratt & Whitney Stadium will begin.
But they know the tailgating wonâ€™t be starting too early.
Kickoff time will either be 3:30 p.m. or 7:15 p.m., and the game will be on ESPN2 or ESPNU. It will be UConnâ€™s final home game of the season.
The networks that have the rights to the game have decided to use one of their six-day windows to make their game selections, meaning the Huskies and Bulls will learn the kickoff time for their game after this weekâ€™s games are completed.
The game was postponed from its originally scheduled Sept. 9 date due to Hurricane Irma. South Florida is 7-0 and ranked 16th in the country.
Missouri coach offers praise
UConn (3-4) will host Missouri (2-5) this weekend in East Hartford. The Huskies and Tigers will face off at 6:30 p.m.
Missouri coach Barry Odom, whose team is coming off a 68-21 win over Idaho, told reporters Monday in Columbia, Missouri, that he admires UConn coach Randy Edsall.
â€śI have a lot of respect for coach Edsall. He took UConn to a BCS bowl,â€ť Odom said. â€śI have great respect for their conference since Iâ€™ve coached there.â€ť
Odom was defensive coordinator at Memphis from 2012-14 under Justin Fuente (now at Virginia Tech) and still knows many coaches and administrators in the American Athletic Conference.
â€śCollectively, from top to bottom, in my mind the American is a Power Five league,â€ť Odom said. â€śThere arenâ€™t many teams that are signing up to play them.â€ť
