Vanderbilt replaces Houston with visit from UConn in 2021

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt will host UConn on Oct. 2, 2021, as a replacement for a previously announced game with Houston.

The game announced Wednesday will be the first between the Southeastern Conference program and UConn since 2011 when the Commodores needed a fourth-quarter comeback to beat the Huskies 24-21. Vanderbilt leads the series all-time 2-1.

Vanderbilt also will host East Tennessee State and Stanford as part of its nonconference schedule in 2021.

UConn also announced a home-and-home series with Georgia State in 2023 and 2024.
