After spending their entire history competing in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS), the Connecticut Huskies became a part of the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in the early 2000s. After the move, the Huskies made their first bowl game appearance in the 2004 Motor City Bowl and defeated the Toledo Rockets 39-10. The Huskies have made more than four bowl appearances, winning multiple times and continue to raise the expectations from the fan base as they add more and more bowl wins to the schools record books.
In their short time as an FBS school, Connecticut has had a few memorable bowl games, but none bigger than their appearance in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl. Connecticut squared off against powerhouse Oklahoma on New Year’s Day. Unfortunately, the Huskies lost the game, but their presence in the game was bigger than the result. Not only was it a premier bowl game appearance, it proved their legitimacy in the FBS and that UConn can compete with the traditional college football powers.
Connecticut fans are very loyal and love to travel to see their favorite team play. Whether it be the Motor City Bowl in Detroit, Michigan or the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona in front of 67,000, Connecticut fans will be in attendance.
