Could UConn’s Big East return help create a new football conference?

Recommended Posts

UConn’s woebegone football team is the last thing anyone in Storrs is worried about with a miraculous return to the Big East now imminent.

But unless the Huskies drop back down to the FCS level (unlikely) or stop playing the sport entirely (very unlikely), they do need to put the dumpster fire program somewhere.

Football independence, and further irrelevance, appears to be the most probable end game. The American Athletic Conference will reportedly have no interest in letting UConn stick around in a football-only capacity once the school jumps ship for the 2020-21 school year. It’s hard to see why Conference USA or the MAC would be interested in a football-only membership as well. So UConn seems destined to be a team without a league like UMass, and a bad situation will only get worse.
