What Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, and Louisville have brought to ACC.

Louisville v Purdue

After Louisville was eliminated from the NCAA baseball tournament during super regional play, it officially closed the book on the Cardinals first year in the ACC. Who knows the future, but for the time being ACC is set in it’s current configuration of teams.
