The American Announces 2023 Football Media Days

The American Athletic Conference has announced that its 2023 Football Media Days will be held July 24-25 at Live! By Loews Arlington Texas.

The in-person event will serve as a celebration of The American’s 10th anniversary and will be the first formal event under the league’s new 14-team football configuration.

The American welcomes UAB, Charlotte, Florida Atlantic, North Texas, Rice and UTSA to its ranks in 2023. They will join continuing members East Carolina, Memphis, Navy, South Florida, SMU, Temple, Tulane and Tulsa to comprise a conference that will continue to compete for perennial New Year's Six bowls and College Football Playoff appearances.

The conference will continue to provide unparalleled access to head coaches, student-athletes and Commissioner Mike Aresco, including a Monday-evening dinner/social function that will serve as the centerpiece of the two-day event. A detailed schedule and list of attendees will be announced at a later date.

The American continued to make history in 2022 as Tulane completed the best one-year turnaround in major college football history, as the Green Wave capped a 12-2 season with a Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic victory against USC and a final national ranking of No. 9. It marked the seventh time in nine seasons of the College Football Playoff era that The American was represented in the New Year’s Six, the fourth win by an American team in the league's 10-year history and the sixth top-10 finish by an American Athletic Conference team.
