First-year head coach Bob Diaco got a taste of life in the newly-formed AAC conference while trying to rebuild the University of Connecticut football program. The Huskies tied for last place in the division with SMU, going 2-10 overall and 1-7 in the conference.
But they can hang their hats on having competed with one of the best teams in the conference. UConn’s best win came against UCF in East Hartford, when the Huskies defeated the Knights, 37-29. UCF was one of three co-champions in the division last season.
The offense brings back a few skill players, including running backs Max DeLorenzo and Ron Johnson. They’ll be behind an experienced offensive line, which may be the offense’s biggest strength. New quarterback Tim Boyle will try and improve one of the worst offenses in college football last season.
UConn football tickets vary from game-to-game like any other team, but are on the less expensive side compared to some other teams in the division. Below, we take a look at a few of the most expensive average ticket prices on the secondary market for UConn games this season, according to TiqIQ.com.
9/26/2015 | Connecticut Huskies vs. Navy Midshipmen | Rentschler Field | Average Price: $78.33 | Get-in Price: $46
9/12/2015 | Connecticut Huskies vs. Army Black Knights | Rentschler Field | Average Price: $76.80 | Get-in Price: $46
The Connecticut Huskies’ two most expensive games are against the service academies Navy and Army. UConn lost to Army last season at Yankees Stadium by two touchdowns, 35-21. Navy is a new addition to the AAC conference, to create a league with two divisions so there will not be another three-way tie for first place atop the division like last season.
10/10/2015 | Central Florida Knights vs. Connecticut Huskies | Bright House Networks Stadium | Average Price: $74.98 | Get-in Price: $21
The game between UCF and UConn last season was the Knights’ worst loss and the Huskies’ best victory. UCF finished in a three-way tie for first place by going 7-1 in the conference, as the Huskies spoiled their effort in trying to take sole possession of the crown. Huskies fans can create a getaway football trip against a quality opponent by booking flights to Orlando through Hipmunk.com for the game.
