Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

UConn Huskies vs Syracuse Orange

Rival Team: Syracuse Orange

The rivalry between Syracuse and UConn began in 1956. However, it didn’t peak until both teams entered the Big East in 1979. From 1979 to 2013, the UConn-Syracuse rivalry was one of the best in the Big East producing many incredible matchups including a six overtime thrill in the 2009 Big East Tournament. The rivalry may have dissipated a bit since the original Big East disbanded, but you’ll still be in for a treat when attending a UConn-Syracuse game.

UConn Huskies vs Georgetown Hoyas

Rival Team: Georgetown Hoyas

The rivalry between the Huskies and the Hoyas dates back to 1958. However, things didn’t really heat up until the two schools became members of the Big East in 1979. The rivalry was always one of the best in the Big East, and even with UConn’s departure in 2013, the matchups between these two are still intense. Make sure to get tickets when Georgetown is in town as there is lots of bad blood between these two rivals.
