Couple more dates in 2017-18 schedule announced

Little by little the dates of UConn's non-conference schedule are being revealed.

DePaul announced that it will host UConn on Dec. 8 while the game against Oklahoma at Mohegan Sun Arena is set for Dec. 19 and is the first in a four-year home and home series between the schools.

It was previously announced that UConn will open the season playing Ohio State on Nov. 12 at Nationwide Arena, the site of the 2018 Final Four

.UConn will have an extended road trip later in November with games at UCLA, against Michigan State at the University of Oregon on Nov. 25 and at Nevada on Nov. 28. There will also be a game in Toronto against Duquesne. Duquesne coach Dan Burt has gone on the record saying that Dec. 22 is the date of that game. Texas announced that it will host UConn on Jan. 15. That leaves the only other road game being at national champion South Carolina. If recent history counts for anything, that game could be in February.

UConn will also host California, Louisville, Maryland and Notre Dame.

Also, the American Athletic Conference portion of the schedule (at least the home and away opponents) figure to be announced after the conference's spring meetings which are schedule to end on June 1.

The AAC went from 18 to 16 conference games last season playing Central Florida and Cincinnati on the road, Houston and Memphis at home and the other six teams both home and away. The schedule grid will need to be altered with Wichita State coming into the conference and I'd be shocked if the Shockers' first season in the AAC doesn't include a home date with UConn.
