Not your typical college football Saturday

Driving into College Station for the UConn women's basketball game at Texas A&M, I couldn't help but be incredibly impressed by the Aggies' athletic facilities and especially the football field.

Obviously A&M is in the spotlight thanks to its recent win over Alabama. That win set the stage for an even crazier Saturday of football as both Kansas State and Oregon suffered their first losses of the season to further scramble the national-championship picture. A&M is also a signal for the even changing landscape in college athletics as the long-time Big 12 mainstay is in its first season in the SEC. There is a sign on the way into campus saying "We are in SEC country."

Well, conference realignment was once again front and center with rumors that Maryland and Rutgers are being wooed for a jump to the Big 10. If that does happen, UConn could be the school which is lured to the ACC to replace Maryland.

The UConn to the ACC scuttlebutt is nothing new but this time it seems more likely than ever before than it could actually happen and at worst, it will be worth watching who all of this shakes out.
