4. AAC Surprise, Disappointment

AAC Team That Will Surprise

Navy Midshipmen

There’s no real surprise when you go 11-2 the year before, but in the race to be in the top two, it helps to miss the likely two best teams in the conference.

No UCF, no Cincinnati. Boom.

Navy is good enough to at least ball with either one of them, but not having to play with those two is a huge plus, and getting Memphis at home helps.

AAC Team That Will Disappoint

Houston Cougars

It’s a good team that’s got just enough individual star power to come up with a winning season – but that’s not why you called.

This is supposed to be a yearly contender for the AAC title, but there’s just enough missing on the defensive front seven to be the difference between taking getting into the top two and being an also-ran.

It’s more about the schedule, though, with a trip to Memphis to start the conference season, a date at Cincinnati in early November, and with games at Navy and BYU both a problem. Throw in the home game against UCF, and this isn’t going to be easy.
