Three storylines to watch in the 2023 AAC Championship Game

Conference championship week is upon us.

All 10 conferences are prepared to pit two of their best teams together this weekend. Six of those 10 matchups featured two AP Top 25 teams, and one conference falling under that umbrella is the American Athletic Conference.

The 2023 AAC Championship Game between Tulane and SMU kicks off at 4 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. CT on Saturday, available for broadcast on ABC. The reigning conference champion Green Wave will play host duties for the second-consecutive season, while the Mustangs are making their first-ever AAC Championship Game appearance before departing for the ACC this offseason.
