The 2022 UConn Huskies football team represents the University of Connecticut (UConn) in the 2022 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Huskies play their home games at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut, and compete as an FBS independent. They are led by first-year head coach Jim L. Mora.[1][2]

Previous season

The Huskies finished the 2021 season 1–11.

On September 5, following the team's 38–28 loss to FCS-school Holy Cross, head coach Randy Edsall announced he would be retiring at the end of the season.[3] The following day, the school announced that Edsall had resigned effective immediately and defensive coordinator Lou Spanos was named the interim head coach.[4][5]

On November 11, former NFL and UCLA head coach Jim L. Mora was named the school's 31st head coach beginning with the 2022 season. Shortly after the hire he helped serve as an offensive assistant for the remainder of the season.[6]

Schedule

UConn's schedule consists of six home games and six away games for the season.
