PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- The American Athletic Conference has a new look to go with its new name.

The conference formerly known as the Big East released its logo on Thursday. The big block blue A with a red star at its center is part of the rebranding of the new conference, which will begin competition this fall.

The American will consist of Rutgers, Louisville, South Florida, Connecticut, Cincinnati, Temple, Central Florida, Memphis, Houston and SMU next year.

Rutgers and Louisville will leave after the 2013 season and Tulane, Tulsa and East Carolina will move in in 2014. Navy is set to become the 12th member in 2015.

    Heading into the U.S. Open, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have won 36 of the past 38 Grand Slam titles, a stretch dating to the 2005 French Open.

    Out of over 500 hopefuls only a handful will join the Brooklyn Nets Kids Dance Team. The Nets held auditions this week at LIU Brooklyn. Adorable Bronx native Arielle was turned away last year but this time around she's made it through to the final round of the auditions. But even those who were on the team last year still have to try out.

    Chris Rock almost made the play of the day at Yankee Stadium. Instead, the comedian wound up with a nice prize -- a foul ball that nearly landed in his lap during Thursday's game between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees.
