ACC expansion forces cancellation of series

Syracuse will join the ACC in 2013

This just in: Syracuse has reached an agreement with the Big East to sever its relationship with that conference on July 1, 2013, and formally join the ACC.

Greg Wallace of the Orange and White takes a game-by-game look at the upcoming season and predicts that the Tigers will finish 10-2.

I'll take it.
