AAC wants flexibility for champ in postseason

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. — American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco says the league wants to have the flexibility in its bowl lineup to give its champion the best possible matchup.

The American still hasn't made its postseason destinations for 2014 and beyond official, but Aresco says the league will have at least seven tie-ins, including many that have been previously reported or discussed publicly.

The American will send teams to bowls in St. Petersburg, Fla., Birmingham, Ala., Fort Worth, Texas, and Washington, D.C.

The conference is working on a new bowl to be played in Miami, and a deal with the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn., where it would be a back-up league.

Aresco says the AAC might not pre-determine where its champion plays so it can match it against the best opponent.
