HOUSTON - The University of Houston Department of Intercollegiate Athletics continued to receive recognition when 145 student-athletes were named to the American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team for the 2013-14 school year.

Each institution may annually submit an unlimited number of nominations. All nominees must have participated in an American-sponsored sport, attained a minimum GPA of 3.0 for the preceding academic year and completed a minimum of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters of academic work with a total of 18-semester or 27-quarter credits.
