Mike Aresco AAC not planning to expand after UConn left American

Instead, plans are in place to move forward with 11 teams and the league has received feedback from the Big Ten Conference on how they once ran an 11-team league.

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco says the league has no plans to add a member to replace CT when the school leaves to join the Big East.

In late June when it was announced that the UConn Huskies would be leaving the American Athletic Conference to return to the Big East, many wondered if it might make sense for the AAC to add the BYU Cougars as a football replacement.

"We're not targeting anyone", Aresco said Tuesday at AAC media days in Newport, R.I. For now, that plan doesn't entail adding another conference member.

But this had an impact on Safa, who suffered a stroke less than 12 hours later due to the loss of the vein. The twins are undergoing daily physiotherapy as part of their ongoing rehabilitation.

"Down the road, if there's someone interested in us who could enhance our strength and brand, we would consider it", Aresco said.

UConn's departure means the AAC have 11 football teams.

"Why would you force us to have a 12th team and raid another conference if we don't want to?" he said.

There is no interest in dropping down to 10 members either, Aresco said. Aresco added he is confident the league will continue holding a football championship game.
