HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) — The latest honor for the University of Connecticut National Champion men’s and women’s basketball teams has a pop-top and fizzes.

Coca-Cola is producing a commemorative 12-ounce can for Coke Zero and Coca-Cola Classic,  with the “Dual Champs” logo,  marking the NCAA titles.

The Classic red can  has fireworks and reads “Coca-Cola Celebrates Dual Champions,”  with the year, “UConn,” the Husky logo and a basketball,   while the Coke Zero can uses a basketball for the Coca-Cola  Zero logo and reads “Congratulations,” then displays the logo.

Coca-Cola says the cans will be available in limited edition six-packs beginning this weekend. They’ll be produced at the East Hartford plant and sold at participating retailers.
