UConn’s football team doesn’t have a whole lot of history with the University of Central Florida, but Huskies coach Bob Diaco brought up the idea of a rivalry game back in November.

On Monday, it seemed like that dream would become a reality.

One problem—UConn never even reached out to UCF:

UConn Football @UConnFootball

First day back on campus for #UConnFootball! And just 130 days until the next Civil Conflict with @UCF_Football ! http://t.co/RgOkXiob0T

Just checked w/ @UCF_Football: "We have no involvement with the trophy or creating a rivalry game with UConn." They were surprised by tweet.

What a shame such a spectacular trophy will go to waste.
