ACC Expansion: Syracuse, Pitt Submit Letters of Application

Syracuse and Pittsburgh have submitted letters of application to join the ACC, according to a report from CBSSports.com. The news confirms Friday's report from the New York Times that the two schools had been in talks with the conference, and sets in motion of what could be another drawn out process of  "will she, won't she" type discussions much like Texas A&M's affair with the SEC.

The CBS report also indicated that 10 other schools had made contact with the ACC, though those schools and their conference affiliations were not revealed by the anonymous high ranking league official. With most of the discussion in recent weeks centered on the Big 12 collapsing into the Pac-12 and SEC, news of the Big East and ACC has gotten lost in the shuffle. Saturday's news indicates that the ACC may have the same inclinations to expand to 14 or 16 teams, in which case the Big East would seem to be a natural source to pick from.
