Maryland Moving to Big Ten (Washington Post)

The University of Maryland will move to the Big Ten Conference, effectively ending 59 years within the Atlantic Coast Conference. The school's Board of Regents approved a bid to join the Big Ten this morning, and the conference has formally and unanimously accepted. Marylands move to the Big Ten will begin in the 2014-15 school year. "We just got the faxed approval letter," a Maryland official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. The school will announce the move in a 3 p.m. press conference in the Stamp Student Union, followed by a national teleconference at 4 p.m. University President Wallace Loh, Chancellor Brit Kirwan, athletics director Kevin Anderson and Big Ten commissioner Jim Delaney are expected to address the media.
