UConn to host seven games in 2013, first season in American Athletic Conference

Following a disappointing 5-7 season in their final year of play in the Big East Conference last year, the University of Connecticut Huskies will look to bounce back in 2013 as they open the inaugural season of the American Athletic Conference.

The Huskies are slated to host seven games this season at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT, with the first three games of the season coming against nonconference opponents at home. According to TiqIQ, UConn’s season opening game against the Towson Tigers on 8/29 checks in as the least expensive home game of the season for the Huskies, at an average ticket price of $31 dollars, with tickets available as inexpensively as $5 dollars just to get in the building. Despite being the season opener, the Towson game is far and away the cheapest game of the season, representing a discount of over 50% the $64 average price for UConn Huskies tickets at home in 2013.

Subsequent to the Towson opener, UConn will have a week off before hosting the Maryland Terrapins on 9/14. The following week however, the Michigan Wolverines come to town for what will be the biggest game and most expensive ticket of the Huskies season. Carrying an average ticket price of $203 dollars, the Michigan game holds a 217% premium over the UConn home season average. In fact, the Michigan game’s get-in price of $109 would also be the most expensive average ticket price of the season for UConn by a pretty significant margin, still dwarfing the Louisville game on 11/8, which is the second most expensive ticket of the season at an average of $72 dollars.

Between the Michigan and Louisville games, UConn will take on the South Florida Bulls on 10/12. The Bulls game is the least expensive conference game of the season for the Huskies, at an average price of $54 dollars and a get-in price of $18. Following the Louisville game, the Huskies hit the road for two weeks before closing out the season back at home against Rutgers and Memphis.

Like Louisville, Rutgers will only be spending one season in the American Athletic Conference, but Huskies fans are still eager to see the Scarlet Knights on 11/30. The average ticket price for the Rutgers game is $62 dollars, making it the third most expensive game of the season behind Michigan and Louisville. The Huskies will wrap up the regular season on 12/7 at home against the Memphis Tigers. Tickets for the Memphis game are available for $57 dollars on average  and just $14 to get-in, making it the second cheapest get-in ticket of the season behind the Towson opener.
