American Athletic 2015 All-Conference Team

Athlon projects the AAC's best for 2015.

The American Athletic Conference should have a contender (or two) for the top spot among Group of 5 leagues for the right to play in one of college football’s top bowl games. And this league has added stability with the addition of Navy, giving the conference two six-team divisions and a conference championship in 2015.

 

The 2015 college football season is still a few months away, but it’s never too early to project what could happen this year.

 

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the American Athletic Conference last week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2015.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2015. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2015 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
