The trio of teams that sat atop the AAC rankings in Week 9 have emerged in a tight race after the UCF Knights beat the No. 20 Cincinnati Bearcats, 25-21, on Saturday to move the both teams at 3-1 in the conference. They sit behind a 4-0 Tulane, but both Cincinnati and UCF will have a shot at the Green Wave in November.

Houston is still hoping for a chance and a fairly easy finish to their conference schedule next month, so don’t count the Cougars out just yet.

Without divisions, the teams with the two best records in the conference compete in the AAC Championship each year. Each AAC team plays eight conference games per season, six against their division opponents and two against multi-division opponents. Last year’s AAC championship winner Cincinnati earned a trip to the College Football Playoff, marking the first Group of 5 school to make an appearance.

Here are the latest American Conference standings ahead of the 2022 AAC Championship Game, which will be held at the home of the No. 1 seed on Dec. 3.
