ACC Expansion: Notre Dame Is UConn's Ticket, According To Report

The Connecticut Huskies have made no secret of their desire to follow the Syracuse Orange, Pittsburgh Panthers and Boston College Eagles into the ACC. Their lack of secrecy cannot be understated. Like, it's kind of odd. While one scenario had the ACC adding UConn and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights to shore up its hold on those college football-rabid Corridor markets, the conference's more likely wish is to add the Huskies along with a bigger fish.

So, yeah, the ACC would add UConn if it could also add the Notre Dame Fighting IrishNBC Connecticut reports. That's the way the story's looked since the Cuse and Pitt pickups, but now there's a sourced story on the matter. Once the Irish say no, UConn and Rutgers could still be the fallback.

The ACC, along with every other conference except the SEC and probably Pac-12, would like Notre Dame too. Their presumed destination all along has been the Big Ten, if they ever do decide to stop bathing in NBC's money for a while. 

There's at least some local interest among Irish supporters for the ACC, so.
