Louisville to the ACC?

The ACC could have a new member by the end of the day. Conference presidents will reportedly vote on inviting Louisville into the conference to replace Maryland, which defected to the Big Ten. UConn and Cincinnati are reportedly also up for consideration.

"North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham said Tuesday that the league's presidents would consider Louisville, UConn and Cincinnati for membership. The ACC is seeking a team to replace Maryland, which will leave for the Big Ten in 2014. 

Sources said there is a sense among league presidents that the ACC will vote to add only one member because the remaining two Big East schools have no other options and the ACC could get them later on if the ACC lost any other schools."

Louisville is a more natural fit for the ACC, given it's proximity to the heart of the conference. It would also straighten the conference on both the football and basketball sides.
