College Football Coverage: American Athletic Conference Preview

It’s a big year of transition for the conference we used to know as the Big East. It’s now re-named the American Athletic Conference, a consequence of the split that took place between the football schools and the basketball-only members. Since the latter created and built the league’s brand, they will carry its name into the new era. As for football…we might have a fresh name and some fresh faces, but it will still be a year where an old era passes away.
