This may sound crazy, but I think we should root for Houston tonight. I'd much rather have a three way tie with USF, UH and UCONN, because then we would win the tiebreaker by having UCF in 4th place.

If we end up with just USF and UCONN tied, we lose the tie breaker.

I believe this is correct. Though I can't find confirmation online, most of the other sports in the AAC use a modified strength of victory tiebreaker if head to head is tied: record against next best team and down the line. If USF-UCONN-Houston finish tied, I believe the head to head is 3-3 for the tied teams. Our 5-1 record versus UCF would then beat the other schools' 1-2 records against UCF.

Looks like a 4-way tie at 14-9 right now. If UCF wins tomorrow I believe they clinch the top seed. If USF wins, it depends on the results of the UConn and Houston games. At 15-9, if my tie-breakers are correct:

USF/UConn/UH: USF

USF/UConn: UConn

USF/UH: USF

If USF/UCF gets rained out or has no decision, UH can be the 1-seed with a win. If they lose then UConn can get it with a win. If both lose, then USF. If all three games get washed out, it should be USF. 

These are unofficial, based on past years' tiebreaking procedures. Simplified, for USF to be the top seed, I believe we need a win, plus either a loss by UConn or a win by UH (or both).
