UConn and Indiana have agreed to meet in football in 2026, UConn announced Tuesday, replacing a meeting lost to the COVID-19 pandemic last fall.

The Hoosiers will visit Rentschler Field on Sept. 26, 2026. They had coincidentally been scheduled to come play in East Hartford on Sept. 26, 2020, but UConn did not play football this school year because of the pandemic.

UConn leads the all-time series between the schools 2-1. The Huskies beat Indiana 34-10 in the first game at the new stadium on Aug. 30, 2003, as future NFLer Dan Orlovsky of Shelton threw for three touchdowns.
