Source: ACC To Vote On Adding Louisville
(NEW YORK) — The Atlantic Coast Conference will vote on whether to add the University of Louisville as a member on Wednesday morning, according to an ESPN source.
Maryland is leaving the conference in 2014 for the Big Ten, and they are looking to add one school to give the league 14 football schools starting that year. The vote will be made among the conference’s presidents and chancellors.
In addition to Louisville, other schools looking to leave the Big East are UConn and Cincinnati. If any of those teams leave, they would join West Virginia, TCU, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Notre Dame and Rutgers as schools that defected in the past year.
On Tuesday, the Big East announced that Tulane would be added in all sports and East Carolina as a football-only member.
Since leaving for the Big 10, Maryland has been sued by the ACC to ensure they pay the $52.2 million exit fee.
