Realignment has been a hot topic in college football over the last couple of weeks and the ACC has struck first. Pittsburgh and Syracuse submitted applications to join the conference recently and the ACC has announced both teams as members on Sunday.
It seems college football is preparing for a major shift in conference realignment very soon. Although the 2011 season is just getting underway, the race is on to get conference affiliation finalized in time for 2012. The first domino is ready to fall, which could spur several teams to change conferences.
