Frank, when UMass announced the move up to FBS there was a succession of quick announcements of future FBS out of conference games. No new games have been announced lately and starting in 2015 there are no home out of conf. games until Vanderbilt in 2018. UConn and Tenn. have recently suspended a home and home series that was scheduled for 2015 and 2016. Any chance UMass will schedule UConn in the next few years? Is the AD waiting to see how the move to FBS goes before scheduling any more games?

UMass has FBS games scheduled out to 2019.

I would think UMass would try to add UConn, but like BC, they'll demand a two-for-one schedule. No BCS team would come to McGuirk. I have heard we will continue to play BCS teams away (we need the money). I've been expecting Notre Dame to buy out the 2015 game now that Molnar is gone.

We'll have to see how things work out.
