Top 10 storylines for the AAC in 2016

…and speaking of Houston-Oklahoma
The American served notice last season with two teams (Houston, Navy) making the final Associated Press top 25 poll. That momentum keeps surging if reigning conference champ Houston upends Oklahoma in NRG Stadium on the season’s opening weekend. Toss in a Temple win at Penn State and/or USF upset of FSU, and maybe the nation really does start perceiving the AAC as the sixth Power Five league.

Nice little write-up.
I agree that if the ex Tennessee QB can do well at Memphis they will be a tough team again. It would be good for the conference for them to get 10 wins as long as UH isn’t one of them :wink:
Navy will also still be a tough game.
I am really hoping that USF has a great year and we have two top 20 teams facing each other in the AAC Championship.
