The contest will be part of a series of games called "Football at Fenway" that will feature various schools in the New England region.
"We are thrilled to take part in the continuation of what we hope will be a longtime partnership with the Fenway Group and the Boston Red Sox," Huskies athletic director David Benedict said in a statement. "This game will present our players an unforgettable experience playing in one of the most-renowned venues in American sport and provide UConn fans with a front row seat. We could not be happier to take part."
Since the game is technically a UConn home game, the Huskies will receive 22,000 of the 39,000 made available to sale. The school will also receive $1.125 million for the participation in the game, which marks the largest payout for the school in program history.
