Maryland to Join Big 10; Rutgers Next

The Big Ten, currently at twelve, will soon be fourteen.

The University of Maryland, a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, announced today they would be leaving that league and joining the Big Ten, effective 2014-2015.

Meanwhile, Rutgers is expected to announce they will be leaving the Big East to join the Big Ten as well.  That announcement will come tomorrow.

The ACC recently upped its exit fee to $50 million (Maryland voted against raising the fee, along with Florida State.)  It was originally thought the exit fee might be a stumbling block to Maryland accepting the Big Ten invitation.

Under Big East bylaws, Rutgers would have to give 27 months notice if they were to accept the Big Ten offer.  But Syracuse and Pittsburgh were able to negotiate the time down.
