UConn has moved up the start of Saturday's game against USF due to the threat of a mosquito-borne virus in the state.
Saturday's kickoff, which had been scheduled for 7 p.m. ET, will now take place at noon.
Two Connecticut residents have died of eastern equine encephalitis this year. Mosquitos are most active from dusk until dawn, and UConn is recommending that all outdoor activities be rescheduled away from those times.
