American Athletic Conference Information:
Headquarters: Providence, RI.
Commissioner: Mike Aresco
The former Big East Conference went under a drastic face lift in 2013 bringing up the new American Athletic Conference, or AAC for short. While the Big East was replaced by the American in football, the AAC only joined as another conference in basketball. The AAC is made up of teams that all support a majority of college sports, primarily focused on football and basketball.
The American's first year as a basketball conference will kick-off in the 2013-14 season. With teams spanning the country from Texas, Florida, Connecticut, Kentucky, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Philadelphia, and Ohio the American Athletic Conference offers a wide selection of teams and competition.
