Just in the past two years there have been 6 top 25 ranked AAC teams, Houston, UCF, USF, Memphis, Navy and Temple. The other 4 “G5” conferences don’t have 6 ranked teams between their 4 conferences.
The AAC has five wins over top 10 teams in the last 3 years. The rest have zero.
The AAC has two NY6 bowl wins over the last 3 years. The rest have zero.
I don’t see how this is hard to understand.
