It’s also where you’ll find the Football Bowl Subdivision’s best-kept secret.

The University of South Florida Bulls — shhhhhh! — have a team well worth watching. It probably sounds ridiculous to mention USF as a legitimate national-title contender, but you know what? The Bulls could be favored to win 11 of their 12 regular-season games.

USF could well be the thinking man’s surprise team for 2016. Already, Ralph D. Russo, lead college football writer for The Associated Press, has projected USF over Houston in the American Athletic Conference’s championship game.

If there is a tie with the east and west champ how is home field determined for the championship game? I assume it is who ever is ranked higher?

Per the AAC website: 

Championship Site
The site of the American Athletic Conference Football Championship will be the home venue of the divisional champion (as determined above) with the best record in conference games.

If the two divisional champions have the same conference record, then the regular-season head-to-head winner between the divisional champions would host the championship.

If the divisional champions have the same conference record and did not play in the regular season, then the team with the better overall regular-season winning percentage would host the championship.

If that does not produce an advantage, then the team that was ranked higher in the most recent College Football Playoff Selection Committee rankings would be the host, provided that team won its final regular-season game. The next tiebreaker would be an average of selected computer rankings.

I'm falling for all the hype. I've been hurt in the past but this one seems like the real deal. They prove it to me time and time again. I'll allow myself to open up and love again... Sorry got carried away.

I am all in. So what if I am disappointed, pretty sure there will be another season of USF football.

I'm all in on this season too.  Feel like this is the year we take home a conference title.
