The 2015 American projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2015 American Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the American tournament.

A team's relative odds to win the 2015 AAC Championship depend only partly on their American bracket seed. Winning the AAC Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2015 American bracket. In some cases, the team with a better AAC Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the AAC Championship championship than a team with a worse American tournament seed.

In addition, because American tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in American conference games, American tournament seeds are not always the most accurate measure of a team's true performance level. This is another reason why higher seeded teams in the American bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 AAC Championship than lower seeded teams in the American bracket.
