The AAC is searching for a new member and BYU seems to be the co-favorite to join the conference.
The AAC is sort of the awkward middle child of college football. On one hand, there are some really solid programs like UCF and Houston and struggling programs like Tulane and Southern Methodist.
They are the definition of being too good to be G5 but not good enough to be P5. But that could change very quickly for better or for worse.
UConn, one of the worst teams in the AAC just announced that they will leaving for the Big East, the conference that they came from just a few years ago, opening a spot(s) in the conference. The opening appears to be wide open to any P5 school, Army or BYU that wants to take the spot.
In most scenarios, I would say that BYU should not accept this offer. After all, BYU already makes P5 money, has an amazing future schedule in the future and has one of the best TV contracts in the nation. But there are two cases that I think that BYU should at least consider joining the AAC.
