Cougars Are Preseason Favorites in AAC Media Poll

The American Athletic Conference announced today that Houston is the favorite in the league’s annual preseason media football poll. The Cougars received 243 points, just ahead of Cincinnati’s 242. UCF was third with 225 points.

All three of the top teams in the poll will leave the AAC in less than a year.

The Cougars were picked to win the league by seven of the 24 media members invited to participate in the poll while Cincinnati received 10 first-place votes.
