TULSA - Goodbye Conference USA. Hello American Athletic Conference.
That's the message the University of Tulsa started sending Wednesday.
The logo of the AAC is being stitched into the turf at H.A. Chapman Stadium as TU prepares to move to its new conference in July.
The trademark blue "A" of the American Athletic Conference will be placed on the 25-yard lines facing the press box.
The AAC will be the sixth home for the Golden Hurricane athletic teams.
