IRVING, TEXAS — The American Athletic Conference has signed an 18,000-square-foot office lease at The Summit at Las Colinas in Irving for its new headquarters.

The American Athletic Conference, formerly known as the Big East, comprises 11 members and includes two Texas educational institutions: the University of Houston and Southern Methodist University.
