Six schools apply for AAC membership


Six schools from Conference USA, including UAB, Texas-San Antonio and Florida Atlantic, have applied for membership to the American Athletic Conference and are expected to be accepted by the end of the week, according to two people with knowledge of the process. Rice, North Texas and Charlotte also have applied for membership, according to sources. The American, which includes the University of Tulsa, was in the market for new members after three of its most successful schools, Cincinnati, Houston and Central Florida, announced in September they would be joining the Big 12.
