Most of the remaining start times and television designations for the 2024 season will be made on a weekly basis throughout the season as part of the conference’s 12-day selection process.

American Athletic Conference teams figure to be well-positioned for a second appearance in the College Football Playoff in 2024 as the new playoff format allows for the five highest-ranked conference champions to reach the 12-team field.

Fifth-year head coach Jeff Traylor welcomes back nearly 50 lettermen, including 16 starters. The Roadrunners are coming off a 9-4 campaign that saw them claim the first bowl win in program history with a 35-17 victory over Marshall in the 2023 Frisco Bowl. UTSA posted a 7-1 mark to finish third in The American in its debut season in the league.
