SAN ANTONIO — Amid a historic season for the football program, the University of Texas at San Antonio has reportedly applied to join the American Athletic Conference along with five other schools.

ESPN reported on Tuesday afternoon that UTSA had joined fellow Conference USA schools Florida Atlantic, Charlotte, North Texas, Rice and UAB in submitting applications to join the AAC. Yahoo Sports reported on the possible six-team expansion on Monday.

Heather Dinich of ESPN reported that the AAC is expected to send each school a letter detailing the expansion this week.

The Roadrunners are on a historic run, 7-0 for the first time and ranked for the first time in the history of the football program after a dominant win over Rice at a packed Alamodome.
