The Atlantic Coast Conference will now be extended to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Syracuse, New York.

The ACC announced earlier this week that its presidents voted unanimously to accept both of those schools to increase its count to 14.

With Pittsburgh and Syracuse leaving, the Big East has lost two of its longtime cornerstone programs. Pitt has been a member for nearly 30 years.

There is a penalty for the two schools to leave the Big East. The fee is $5 million and they have to provide at least 27 months notice.

It has not been determined when the two schools will begin play in the ACC.
