Well thats a difficult question to answer if you don't care where you want to work, but i'll bite.
I'd say Houston PT because not only is it the highest ranked school in Houston (4th largest city in the country), it also has portability in the state of Texas which in and of itself is a very insular legal market. They don't pinch too far from out of state unless its a school like Tulane which is very close or somewhere like a T14 or something.
My guess it that UConn would give you good prospects for working in the Northeast, but there are so many higher ranked schools that are in the big city markets (take BC and BU for Boston and NYU/Columbia/Fordham for NYC respectively for example)
But once again it is not impossible to find good private firm jobs out of either school, but it all boils down to where you want to work...
