Duke, UConn schedule four-game football series beginning in 2025

Duke and UConn have unveiled plans for an exciting four-game football series that will kick off in 2025. The first showdown will see Duke on the road, facing off against UConn at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut, on November 8, 2025. Fast forward four seasons, and Duke will return to the same venue for a rematch on September 29, 2029.

The series also includes two games hosted by Duke at Brooks Field at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina. The initial home game is set for November 7, 2026. Then, concluding the series, Duke will welcome UConn once more on August 31, 2030.

Duke, representing the ACC, and UConn, an FBS Independent, crossed paths earlier in the season, resulting in a convincing 41-7 victory for the Blue Devils. This game marked the start of a home-and-home series, which will wrap up when Duke hosts the Huskies in Durham on September 14, 2024.

In their limited previous matchups on the football field, the Huskies secured a 22-20 win over the Blue Devils in East Hartford in 2004 and followed up with a 45-14 victory in Durham in 2007.

With the addition of UConn to its schedule, Duke has tentatively finalized their non-conference games for 2025. They are set to begin the season on the road against Middle Tennessee on August 30, followed by a home game against Illinois on September 6, and a trip to face Tulane on September 13.

UConn, on the other hand, now boasts a total of 11 games scheduled for the 2025 season. Among these matchups, they will host Central Connecticut, Ball State, FIU, UAB, and UMass and venture to Syracuse, Purdue, Buffalo, Army, and Ohio State.
