American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco said the 13-member College Football Playoff selection committee has ranked the teams in his conference using a “double standard,” not just when measured against the Power 5 conferences but also the other Group of 5 leagues. “We’ve been fighting what I think is a P5 preference,” Aresco said. “We’ve been fighting it for years and we’re fighting now a double standard when it comes to evaluating G5 teams.” Aresco also said the AAC has 44 wins against Power 5 opponents since 2014, five top-10 wins during that span, and three New Year’s Day bowl wins over top-10 teams. He was particularly frustrated SMU wasn’t ranked ahead of Appalachian State, considering the Mustangs’ lone loss was to a ranked Memphis team. – Heather Dinich, ESPN, Read More
