Conference Preview: American

This article is part of our Conference Preview series.

Over the past couple of seasons, conference realignment has cooled down. The AAC warmed things up by landing a nice fish in Wichita State, which had dominated the Missouri Valley since Creighton left the conference. The move allows the conference to have an even dozen teams. SMU and Cincinnati will not be able to dominate like last year, when they suffered a combined three conference losses. The conference could conceivably send three teams to the NCAA Tournament with a possible fourth lurking in teams like UCF, Temple, and Connecticut (if the Huskies can stay healthy). The American Athletic may not be able to break into "Tier 1" status, but it isn't far off.
