Five American Athletic Conference Games to Watch Over The COVID-19 Sports Break

We’re baaaaaaaaack with more football to watch. We have five AAC games to watch today.

Tomorrow is C-USA.

Enjoy and stay safe.

Houston vs. Tulane 2019

Tulane came into the game 3-1 and Houston was 1-2 needing a win to get back on the right track. D’Eriq King was still the Cougars QB and this looked like it could be the game where he would prove to be one of the best QBs in the AAC.

Instead, Tulane pulled off a stunner and essentially shut down the Cougars’ entire season.

 

#21 Memphis vs. #24 Houston 2015

Undefeated Houston hosts 8-1 Memphis, with the Tigers needing a win to stay in the division title race with Houston and Navy and keep hopes of an NY6 Bowl alive. Greg Ward leads the Cougar offense against Paxton Lynch and the Tigers. Remember him?

This was one of the best games of the 2015 season, Greg Ward went down just before halftime and Kyle Postma came in and led a comeback that may or may not have been successful.

 

#14 Houston vs. #9 Florida State 2015 Peach Bowl

In the first year of the new bowl format, the G5 has a big chance to make a statement with Houston going up against Florida State.

This game had the potential to be a shootout with weapons like Greg Ward, Dalvin Cook, and Travis Rudolph on the field. But Houston’s defense would completely shutdown Dalvin Cook and Greg Ward could not be stopped.

 

USF vs. #15 UCF 2017

This is, by far, the best game I’ve ever attended.

A rivalry game on Black Friday, primetime ESPN, a division title on the line – what more could you possibly want?

It was back and forth throughout the entire game and the ending was one of the greatest of the season. UCF QB McKenzie Milton and USF QB Quinton Flowers both had legendary performances that would help cement their legacies in their school’s histories.

 

#20 Memphis vs. #14 UCF 2017 AAC Championship Game

This is the second-best game I’ve ever attended and I got to see them in back to back weeks.

An offensive explosion would be an understatement. It had 1,479 total yards and 117 points. It was an absolute shootout. Defense was a non-factor until the very end of the game.

This one had underlying drama taking place during the game. What was going to happen with Scott Frost? Would he take the Nebraska job? The news broke near the end of the fourth quarter before overtime started that he would become the new Cornhuskers coach. The fans were in shock but their team had an NY6 Bowl on the line.
