Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

Get ready for some more SEC vs. Big East debate fodder in the future.

Connecticut and Tennessee will play a two-year series in 2015 and 2016, the schools just announced.

The first game will be Sept. 26, 2015, at UConn's Rentschler Field, while the second one will be held at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville on Sept. 3, 2016.

UConn has stepped up its nonconference scheduling in recent years. The Huskies have series scheduled with North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Iowa State, North Carolina State and Maryland, plus a five-game deal with Notre Dame to be split between South Bend and neutral sites.
