The American Athletic Conference is the successor to the original Big East Conference.

On July 1, 2013, the seven catholic schools in the Big East Conference, DePaul University, Georgetown University, Marquette University, St. John's University, Seton Hall University, Villanova University, and Providence College (collectively known as the Catholic 7) formed a new non-football conference, known as the Big East Conference. Butler University, Creighton University, and Xavier University will also be joining the newly formed conference on July 1. The remaining schools joined with 4 schools from Conference USA (University of Memphis, University of Houston, Southern Methodist University, and University of Central Florida) to form the American Athletic Conference. 3 more C-USA schools (Tulane University, East Carolina University, University of Tulsa) will join in 2014. Even though the Big East name will go with the Catholic 7, the AAC will be the successor to the old Big East and will retain all postseason automatic bids and tie-ins.

The University of Louisville will be leaving in 2014-2015 to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, and Rutgers University will leave at the same tme to join the Big Ten Conference.
