The bowl schedule for this year is out. Same number of games as last year, 40 including the playoff. AAC has eight tie-ins, not counting if the conference champ gets into a NY6 game. Three of those tie-ins come against "P5" opponents: the Military Bowl vs ACC/Notre Dame, the Armed Forces Bowl vs. Big 12, and the Birmingham Bowl vs SEC. We also tie-in with the Hawaii Bowl instead of the Bahamas Bowl this season.

Bottom line, we are very unlikely to get left out if we get six wins. If we have a strong season there are several appealing opponents and destinations out there for us.

7 of 8 before Christmas. Not Huge fan of that. Kinda seems second rate. AAC needs to own the G5 New years Six bowl birth every year.

Are you sure about the Hawai'i Bowl? It doesn't list the American as a participant.

They have edited the article. I'm 100% certain we were listed as a tie-in when I posted the article. Assuming their edit is correct, we have seven tie-ins not counting a NY6 bowl if the conference gets a berth in one.
