The 2017 season will be here before you know it. We will be previewing each conference in great detail throughout the week, but since you are a busy fan with a short attention span, we've also narrowed each team's outlook into one tweet of content (140 characters or less).
Up first, a look at all 12 teams of the American Athletic Conference.
Cincinnati: Luke Fickell has the chance to build his career as a head coach leading Cincy to the top in the AAC. Let's start with bowling in 2017
UConn: Welcome back Edsall. Could struggle in '17 but his hires were right and the future is bright. Arkeel Newsome worth the price of admission
East Carolina: Scottie Mo got Thomas Sirk to follow him down 264. Can these two bowl together like they did at Duke in '15? Pirates need a spark on offense
Houston: No Herman hangover. Applewhite, Ed Oliver and Kyle Allen could surpass last year's 9-win total. There's no game the Cougs can't win
Memphis: Riley Ferguson is the QB that will have way more draft hype in 2018 after Memphis' offense lights up AAC foes (and maybe even UCLA)
Navy: Zach Abey started as a relief option at QB, but now he's ready to be a star in Navy's offense. Defense has to be better for another division title
USF: With Charlie Strong and Quinton Flowers, expectations are for not only another 10-win season but an AAC title. Bulls ready for the big time?
SMU: WR Courtland Sutton is going to give opposing DCs night terrors. SMU is set for another step forward with Chad Morris, should be bowling.
Temple: The program is in a totally different place thanks to Matt Rhule. Geoff Collins will keep the Owls bowling, but there's a lot to replace
Tulane: The Green Wave could be an underdog in nearly every conference game. Willie Fritz is a great coach, but 2017 might not be the breakthrough
Tulsa: One of the most dangerous teams in the league won 10 games and still flew below the radar. A lot to replace, but faith in the system remains
UCF: Scott Frost has the juice of a bowl season to build with a young offense and now we're looking at the Knights as a team that can win the AAC.
