And how does Texas get a host over USF, 22 rpi vs 17 rpi?
Happy for DP but don’t underestimate the cache of Texas.

Big 12 Regular Season Champ.

I thought UCONN got hosed out of a host site. They were deserving with a #16 RPI
AAC probably get 3 teams in. ECU, UCONN and USF for sure. Maybe Houston at #45 since they won the regular season.

If uconn bid included their on campus field they did not get hosed.

I’d agree. But they went with the minor league park.
UConn submitted a bid to host at Dodd Stadium in Norwich and made its case for a top seed with a 35-20-1 record against a difficult schedule. The American Athletic Conference had the fourth highest conference RPI, with three teams in the top 20, and UConn finished 14-10 in the regualar season, then won three conference tournament games before losing the final to East Carolina. Among UConn’s quality road wins was one at Coastal Carolina.
They getting a new stadium as well:
