    AAC sounds about right for that conference when sounded out.

    The acronym BCS is curiously missing from that article. From Wikipedia:

    The conference is one of the six automatic qualifying conferences of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), also known as a "Power Six Conference."[SUP][3][/SUP] However, the conference will become a part of the "Group of Five" and share access to one of six premier bowls with 4 other conferences (Conference USA (C-USA), the Mid-American Conference (MAC), the Mountain West Conference, and the Sun Belt Conference) when a 4-team playoff begins in 2014.[SUP][4][/SUP] Michael Aresco, who is currently serving as commissioner of the Big East, will serve as the conference's commissioner beginning July 1, 2013.[SUP][5][/SUP]
