According to The ACC, the Atlantic Coast Conference has announced future scheduling formats that will go into effect once Syracuse and Pittsburgh officially become members of the Conference.
"We have been engaged in discussions on the various options for integrating Pitt and Syracuse since early fall," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "It's a tremendous tribute to the leadership at our schools that we will be able to seamlessly add Pitt and Syracuse at the appropriate time when they become full playing members."
Future scheduling changes will be implemented in college football, men and women's college basketball and Olympic sports.
Syracuse will join the Atlantic Division and Pittsburgh will join the Coastal Division in football. The league will proceed to play a nine game conference schedule. In basketball, the ACC will play an 18 game conference schedule.
