HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) UConn football coach Bob Diaco has created a trophy and countdown clock, saying Monday he doesn't need UCF's permission to manufacture a rivalry game with the Knights.
Diaco's office last week posted a picture on Twitter (http://bit.ly/1F4kDfb ) of a trophy he had commissioned for the annual game between the American Athletic Conference schools, which he has dubbed "The Civil Conflict." Above the trophy was a clock marking the amount of time until the Oct. 10 game in Orlando.
"First day back on campus for (hash)UConnFootball! And just 130 days until the next Civil Conflict with (at)UCF-Football !" the post read.
