It is common knowledge that there is a Power 5 in football and that the American Athletic Conference is not a Power Conference and will never “deserve” a spot in their exclusive playoff.
In basketball, the American Athletic Conference, IS viewed as 1 of the top 7 Basketball conferences, along with the the Big East plus the other 5, and its proven that you do NOT have to be from of one of those 5 conferences to win the National Chsmpionship. Plenty of examples, including UCONN while in the AAC.
I want to keep an eye on this because it’s looking like we will/could finish the season with MORE top 25 football teams than basketball, yet in a sport where we are told we are NOT a power conference.
The AAC needs to keep posting impressive results…it proves we are a Power Conference in both!
