Pitt, Syracuse Moves To ACC Reportedly Will Be Made Official This Weekend

Chip Brown tweets that Pitt and Syracuse will soon be joining the ACC.

Big 12 administrator tells Orangebloods.com Syracuse and Pitt will be announced as 13th and 14th members of the #ACC on Sunday.

It’s wild that this has happened so fast. This move will have tremendous implications not only for the Pitt program, but for the future of the Big East, which hadn’t exactly been a football powerhouse in the past couple of years anyway.

The overall quality of football in the ACC is obviously higher, and Pitt will need to step up its game. The quality of basketball is lower – the ACC has Duke and North Carolina, and now Syracuse as well, but it’s not nearly as deep as last year’s Big East.

After this becomes official, we’ll see how this affects Pitt’s rivalry with West Virginia. In the meantime, though, it certainly looks like the Big East will be changing.
