Louisville picked to win American Athletic football title

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - Louisville is the overwhelming favorite to win the American Athletic Conference in its last season as a member of the league formerly known as the Big East.

The Cardinals received 28 of 30 first-place votes from a media panel. Louisville moves into the Atlantic Coast Conference next season, but hopes it can grab a second straight league title and BCS bid before it goes.

Cincinnati received the other two first-place votes and was picked second. Rutgers was third. The Scarlet Knights are also leaving the conference after this season. They'll be in the Big Ten in 2014.

Central Florida is one of four schools moving from Conference USA to the American this season. It was picked fourth, followed by South Florida, Houston, Connecticut and SMU.

Temple was picked ninth and Memphis 10th.
