PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The American Athletic Conference has announced a number of changes to its 2017 football schedule, including a rescheduled date for the game between USF and UConn that was not played last week in advance of Hurricane Irma.

The USF-UConn game will be played Saturday, Nov. 4, at Pratt & Whitney Stadium in East Hartford, Connecticut. To accommodate the rescheduled date, games involving three other American Athletic Conference teams have been adjusted as well.

"I would like to thank our presidents, athletic directors and our head football coaches for their outstanding collaboration and cooperation to resolve this unprecedented situation in as fair a manner as possible," said American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco. "I would also like to acknowledge and thank Ryan Bamford of UMass for his cooperation and understanding. This was not an easy process, but we feel that this revised schedule is a significant step toward giving us the best opportunity to decide our champion on the field."

The changes to the 2017 schedule for each team are as follows:

UConn
UConn will host ECU Sunday, Sept. 24 (replacing an open date) and will host USF Saturday, Nov. 4 (replacing the original date of the ECU game). The game will be played on a Sunday due to the unavailability of Pratt & Whitney Stadium on Saturday.

USF
USF will host Cincinnati Saturday, Oct. 14 (replacing a previously scheduled game against Massachusetts), will host Houston Saturday, Oct. 28 (replacing the original game against Cincinnati), and will play at UConn Saturday, Nov. 4 (replacing the original game against Houston).

Cincinnati
Cincinnati will play at USF Saturday, Oct. 14 and will have its open date Oct. 28 (replacing an Oct. 14 open date and the game at USF Oct. 28).

ECU
ECU will visit UConn Sunday, Sept. 24 (replacing an open date), will have an open date Saturday, Oct. 28 (replacing a game against Houston), and will play at Houston Saturday, Nov. 4 (replacing the previously scheduled game against UConn).

Houston
Houston will play at USF Saturday, Oct. 28 (instead of Nov. 4) and will host ECU Saturday, Nov. 4 (instead of Oct. 28).

Memphis-UCF is also back on for September 30th, Maine-UCF bought out.
Hard to imagine the SEC ever doing this baseball double switch type stuff. Props to Aresco and the AAC ADs for making this happen.

Lesson learned here is fans don't buy plane tickets that can't be refunded.
