"BigPussycat" on MT.org kindly found the below link which mentions four AAC schools (Houston as a given, USF, UCF, and Memphis).

Click Here

It is important for AAC schools to secure a stranglehold on an Access Bowl slot to continue our separation from other G5 schools.

A lot of this will depend on pre-season rankings, unfortunately, which depend on previous seasons, name brand, and prejudiced preconceptions. From this perspective, only USF has a realistic chance this year, due to preseason buzz and the hiring of a big name coach. This is the Achilees heel of college football, that it comes down to experts, not on field performance, because I agree that both Houston and Memphis could be good enough this year. UCF IMO is still one year away.

This is about the Access Bowl slot, not the College Football Playoffs. Our champ will only fighting with the other 4 G5 conference winners for a place in either the Peach, Cotton or Fiesta Bowl.

This year, it'll either be the Peach or Fiesta. Same for next year. Because in 2019, it has to be the Cotton (since the Peach and Fiesta are semifinal games).

a Memphis team with 10-11 wins would travel REALLY well to the Peach Bowl...I'd love to see that.

those last 3 games of the season will 'tell the tale' for USF. Houston and Tulsa at home...UCF on the road.
