BYU seems interested in the AAC if the CFP expands to 8 teams with G5 auto-qualifer.
I have one issue with the article statement below. If the G5s are a CFP auto-qualifer, we don’t need to call and invite BYU.
JOIN THE AMERICAN
This may be the most likely endgame - the CFP expands and the top G5 team gets a bid, then the American comes calling to expand and invites BYU, Boise and Air Force. It creates a western division of those 3, SMU, Tulsa, Houston and Memphis. The East is made up of Navy, ECU, USF, UCF, Temple, Tulane and Cinci. It’s the same league we were invited to and said no to in 2011, but have kept close with. This league has good travel destinations and 9/10 years is going to be the G5 bid to the playoff - and after a decade of that it would be a de facto P6, which it already proclaims to be.
