The dominoes of college football realignment may continue to fall.

The latest round of conference musical chairs has left Connecticut once again looking for a seat at a conference table.

The Big Ten's recruitment of Rutgers from the Big East and Maryland from the Atlantic Coast Conference has led to renewed speculation the Huskies might jump to the ACC to replace the Terrapins.

Connecticut, like Rutgers, has been looking for a landing spot since Pittsburgh and Syracuse announced their departures from the Big East last year. UConn president Susan Herbst has long hinted that an invitation to join that ACC is something the school would welcome.

She and athletic director Warde Manuel have said that while they are committed to working with the Big East, they will do what is in the best interests of the university.
