American Athletic Conference
The AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE (also known as THE AMERICAN and sometimes abbreviated AAC) is an American collegiate athletic conference , featuring 12 member universities and three associate member universities that compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association 's (NCAA) Division I , with its football teams competing in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). Member universities represent a range of private and public universities of various enrollment sizes located primarily in urban metropolitan areas in the Northeastern , Midwestern , Western , and Southern regions of the United States
United States
. The American's legal predecessor, the original Big East Conference , was considered one of the six collegiate power conferences of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) era in college football , and The American inherited that status in the BCS's final season. With the advent of the College Football Playoff in 2014, The American became a "Group of Five" conference, which shares one automatic spot in the New Year\'s Six bowl games. The league is the product of substantial turmoil in the old Big East during the 2010–14 conference realignment period . It is one of two conferences to emerge from the all-sports Big East in 2013. While the other successor, which does not sponsor football, purchased the Big East Conference name, The American inherited the old Big East's structure and is that conference's legal successor

During this event, several university students shouted, "We fight like Tigers!" The nickname was born. As time passed, the nickname "Tigers" was increasingly used, particularly in campus publications, but did not catch on with the newspapers downtown. They continued to use "the Blue and Gray" when referring to the university

The conference was centered in the Upper South with some strength in the Deep South . The conference never sponsored football , although most of its members throughout its history had Division I-A football programs (from 1983–91, all Metro schools had independent football programs). In 1995, it merged with the Great Midwest Conference to form Conference USA

NCAA Division I
DIVISION I (D-I) is the highest level of intercollegiate athletics sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in the United States . D-I schools include the major collegiate athletic powers, with larger budgets, more elaborate facilities and more athletic scholarships than Divisions II and III as well as many smaller schools committed to the highest level of intercollegiate competition. This level was once called the University Division of the NCAA, in contrast to the lower level College Division; these terms were replaced with numeric divisions in 1973. The University Division was renamed Division I, while the College Division was split in two; the College Division members that offered scholarships or wanted to compete against those who did became Division II , while those who did not want to offer scholarships became Division III . For football only, Division I was further subdivided in 1978 into DIVISION I-A (the principal football schools), DIVISION I-AA (the other schools with football teams), and DIVISION I (those schools not sponsoring football). In 2006, Division I-A and I-AA were renamed "FOOTBALL BOWL SUBDIVISION " (FBS) and "FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP SUBDIVISION" (FCS), respectively

, and helps more than 450,000 college student-athletes who compete annually in college sports. The organization is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana . In 2014, the NCAA generated almost a billion dollars in revenue. 80 to 90% of this revenue was due to the Division I Men\'s Basketball
Basketball
Tournament . This revenue is then distributed back into various organizations and institutions across the United States. In August 1973, the current three-division setup of Division I , Division II , and Division III was adopted by the NCAA membership in a special convention. Under NCAA rules, Division I and Division II schools can offer scholarships to athletes for playing a sport. Division III schools may not offer any athletic scholarships. Generally, larger schools compete in Division I and smaller schools in II and III. Division I football was further divided into I-A and I-AA in 1978. Subsequently, the term "Division I-AAA" was briefly added to delineate Division I schools which do not field a football program at all, but that term is no longer officially used by the NCAA
