The realignment fallout continues after the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners opted to leave the Big 12 Conference for the SEC earlier this year. This time, the drama is going down in the Group of Five conferences, according to a recent report in ESPN.

From ESPN: “Florida Atlantic, Charlotte, North Texas, UTSA, Rice and UAB have each officially requested to join the AAC, a move that was first reported by Yahoo Sports on Monday. It’s the first step in the realignment process, which is expected to move quickly this week after the university presidents and their general counsels have time to review the terms. The AAC’s desire to expand comes after Cincinnati, UCF and Houston decided this fall to eventually join the Big 12. UConn also left after the 2019 season. The addition of six more schools would expand the AAC to a 14-team conference in football and basketball while crippling Conference USA, where all of the schools currently call home.”
