NCAA Football 14 Replaces Big East with American Athletic Conference



The Big East conference, soon to be completely defunct as a football conference, is being replaced by it's successor, the American Athletic Conference (or American for short) in NCAA Football 14 this year.

Quote:
I recently caught up with an EA representative who set the record straight with all of the conference changes that will go into effect in this year's NCAA Football game. The most notable being the removal of the Big East, as it is now basketball only. Well, technically the Big East is still in the game as the remaining members -- USF, UCONN, Cincinnati, Rutgers, and Louisville -- are joined by newcomers Temple, Houston, SMU, Memphis and UCF. Things will change for the conference, once again, next year, but for now this is the make-up. However, the conference will now be known as the American Athletic Conference, and its new name will be represented in NCAA Football 14.

EA's Brad Hilderbrand confirmed to me that the Big East name has been replaced with American, "their preferred shorthand name rather than AAC." Since the conference has yet to finalize their logo, EA is using the NCAA pennant as a placeholder; it will be updated once the official American conference logo is decided.

There is no indication yet that future conferences moves will be incorporated into the game's dynasty mode, such as Tulsa becoming a member of the American later on, leaving Conference USA. We've submitted a request for comment and will update if we get anything back!

Thanks The Gaming Tailgate!

I'll have to get used to Pitt playing FSU and the gang in the ACC.

Re: NCAA Football 14 Replaces Big East with American Athletic Conference

Was really wondering about this. I'm pumped. My only remaining question regarding this, is if the future realignment will be possible, unlike last year. For instance, are there still:

1. Limits on Independents
2. Limits on Conference Size (Min and Max).
3. On-Going Scheduling Conflicts if you Manually Change Conferences, such as teams only playing 10 or 11 games.
4. Also, what about the BCS becoming history in a year??...

Oh and of course, are Patches on Jerseys going to change if we switch them between conferences?? Rather than just the field art.

Them sliding this into the game makes me hopeful they'll put in the tiny playoff option they're going to implement next year into the game this year.

I would like to know this as well. I know it's not a big deal but it would be nice if they added that.

It's a pretty big deal to me, as I like to change around conferences quite a bit so the game doesn't get stale. Seeing the PAC 12 logo on Oregon's uni instead of whatever conference I put them into really annoys the heck out of me, and I'm not one to give a poo about uniforms. This is actually the only uniform issue I care about.

Good to know that the conferences (big-picture speaking) will be up-to-date.

Except the absence of Appalachian State, Charlotte and UT-Arlington?? I think it's them. This leaves some Conferences without the option for championship games in future Dynasty Years (Realistically speaking). I wish EA would allow at least the ability to add teambuilder teams to a dynasty. Even a limit of >5 or >3 who cares it'd be nice.
