The Notre Dame women's basketball team will play Connecticut twice during the Big East regular season for the fourth time in a row.
The Big East announced conference opponents Wednesday with each team playing eight home and eight road games with two repeat opponents this season. Dates and times will be announced at a later date.
The Irish and Huskies have played each other eight times in the last two seasons with each team winning four games. Notre Dame defeated UConn three times last season and won the last two NCAA tournament semifinal games between the programs.
Notre Dame advanced to the last two national championship games, losing to Baylor last season and Texas A&M in 2011.
The Huskies lead the all-time series 29-8.
"I think it would be difficult to find another rivalry in the country that has had more games played a high level in such a short span of time than our recent series with Connecticut," Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw said in a news release. "We've played eight times in the past two years and just about every one of those games has come right down to the wire. That's not only a credit to both programs, but also to the Big East as a whole, which continues to show that it's right up there among the very best conferences in the nation.
"Our fans will have a lot to look forward to next season, with several strong teams coming to Purcell Pavilion. In fact, every one of the Big East schools are showing improvement, and we're going to be tested on a nightly basis. These conference games should be excellent preparation for us looking ahead to the postseason."
Notre Dame's other repeat opponent is Providence.
The Irish will also play host to Cincinnati, Georgetown, Louisville, Rutgers, St. John's and Syracuse.
Notre Dame's other road games are against DePaul, Marquette, Pittsburgh, Seton Hall, South Florida and Villanova.
