UConn announced its non-conference schedule for the upcoming season and the slate is highlighted by matchups with the last two national champions.

The Huskies will play on the road against defending champion Notre Dame  on Dec. 2 in the Jimmy V Classic while non-conference portion of the schedule concludes with UConn playing host to South Carolina.

An interesting twist to the schedule is that UConn will play its second and final preseason game against Southern Connecticut State University after facing Ohio State in the regular-season opener.

Another highlight will be a showdown with a Baylor team likely to start the season ranked in the top five. There will be a game at Louisville on Jan. 31 with back to back road games on Dec. 19 against Oklahoma and Dec. 22 at Cal.
