AAC unlikely to replace UConn for Football

The fallout from UConn’s likely move from the American Athletic Conference (AAC) back to the Big East continues.

UConn is likely to spend one more season in the AAC before moving to the Big East. UConn’s football programme’s future is undetermined at this moment – the Big East does not sponsor football, and the AAC is unlikely to allow UConn to continue as a football-only member.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the AAC is unlikely to replace UConn in football now that the NCAA permits conferences to continue to hold title games even with under 12 members.

ESPN reports that the UConn Board of Trustees will vote on an invitation to the Big East Wednesday, with an announcement from the conference coming as early as Thursday.
