HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut says it plans to add more than 2,000 temporary seats to its 40,000-seat football stadium for September’s game against Michigan.

Spokesman Mike Enright says the seats are needed, because UConn agreed to provide 5,000 tickets to the Wolverines for that game, 2,000 more than the normal allocation to visiting teams.

Enright says plans are still in the early stages, but the seats likely will be erected in the open area behind the west end zone of the stadium.

The Sept. 21 game is the second half of a home-and-home series with Michigan. The Wolverines beat the Huskies 30-10 in Ann Arbor in 2010, the first game played after major renovations to Michigan Stadium. The attendance at that game was 113,090.
