AAC wants to try to poach at least some remaining Big 12 teams, cites TV deal: “We’ve already got ESPN at the table.”

At first glance, the idea of the AAC adding Big 12 teams makes no sense from a financial standpoint, unless those teams are completely out of options or unless ESPN decides those additions somehow make the AAC worth a whole lot more. But ESPN could possibly decide that as part of an overall campaign to claim more college football rights from Fox.
