AAC Schedule: 8 Conference Games Plus Up To 4 Non-Conference Games


The SEC is playing a 10-game conference only schedule as is the Pac-12 and Big Ten. The ACC is playing 10 conference games but also one non-conference game. The Big 12 will play nine conference games with one non-conference game on their schedules. With an official announcement expected Wednesday, the AAC will play an eight game conference schedule plus up to four non-conference games.

AAC Commissioner Mike Aresco said that playing 10 games would limit their non-conference games and he felt that there are some Power 5 as well as Group of 5 that the teams could play, and play safely.

Commissioner Aresco also said that there would be no travel restrictions when scheduling these non-conference games.

"We charter, and we think it's a fair way to do things as long as the protocols are in place. We've urged our ADs to reach out to nonconference opponents to make sure the protocols are in place, and there will be real integrity there."

The Sun Belt has also adopted the schedule of eight conference games plus up to four non-conference games for this season.
