– Unlike the American Athletic Preseason Team Rankings, these are based on what’s predicted to happen and not based on how good the teams are. UCF comes into the season stronger than USF, but the showdown between the two is in Tampa at the end of the regular season.

– Cincinnati, East Carolina, and UConn will all be stronger, but they have way too many tough games at home and way too many nasty parts of the schedule to deal with. They’ll all have good moments, but not enough of them.

– Temple is the wild-card for the league as a whole late in the season, especially with a three-game stretch at UCF, at Houston and at home against USF.
