"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.

Totally agree. It will be challenging for USF to make it through that uncathed. UCF is chomping at big to take us down after last 2 years.

UCF & Houston should enter a long term contract with SDSU and Boise so that Western Michigans, App States, NIUs don't steal our NY6 game.

I think the team everyone is overlooking is WKU. I can see them go 13-0.

The lost 3 OL, a lot on defense, and have a 35-year old first-time head coach.

Undefeated seasons are hard. Will he push all the right buttons?

The schedule is certainly easy. Two winnable P5 road games at Vandy and Illinois.

Let's put it this way. They would need to be 2 games better than the MWC and American champ. 13-0 won't get it if one of those champs is 12-1. 12-1 won't get it if one of those champs is 11-2.

SDSU is the "monster" of the MWC WEST division where all the easy wins are. The Mountain division has all the good teams, Boise, Air Force, Wyoming, Colorado St and New Mexico were all the solid Bowl teams last year. So SDSU should easily win their side of the conference. I picked Colorado St to win the MWC iin my pre season conference champion picks. Although I noticed some had CSU 4th or 5th in the MWC-M, which is weird...I picked USF in the AAC. WKU in CUSA, NIU in the MAC and Troy in the Sun Belt.

Well, if you are right about your NIU pick, a 12-1 SDSU team with wins over NiU, Arizona State, Boise State, and Colorado State with a loss to Stanford in Week 3, looks pretty good for the Access Bowl.

Alas, I see 11-2 as more likely. We'll lose a random conference game somewhere (possibly @ Hawaii or against New Mexico)

No way on Houston. New coach, new QB, so no way.
