The Connecticut Huskies, also known as the UConn Huskies, are the athletic teams of the University of Connecticut in the United States. The school is a member of National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I and the American Athletic Conference. The major sports at the university are football (played at Rentschler Field) and men's and women's basketball (played on-campus at Harry A. Gampel Pavilion and off-campus at the XL Center), although many of the other sports have large followings and a tradition of success. UConn is one of only 15 universities in the nation that plays Division I FBS football and Division I men's ice hockey.
The university's teams are nicknamed "Huskies", a name adopted in 1934 after the school's name changed from Connecticut Agricultural College to Connecticut State College in 1933; before then, the teams were referred to as the Aggies. Though there is a homophonic relationship between "UConn" and the Yukon, where Huskies are native, the "Huskies" nickname predates the school's 1939 name change to the University of Connecticut; the first recorded use of "UConn" (as "U-Conn", both separately and with "Huskies") was later in 1939. UConn's women's teams are not known as the "Lady Huskies," but simply as "UConn Huskies," the same as the men's team. UConn's teams participate in the NCAA's Division I and in the American Athletic Conference for all sports except men's and women's ice hockey. UConn's football team participates in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Huskies have been a member of the American since its founding in 1979 as the original Big East Conference, and are the only remaining charter member of that league. Since hockey is not sponsored by the American, the men's and women's hockey programs are now members of Hockey East. The club alpine skiing team competes in the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association because of a stricter limit on NCAA skiing programs.
