Maryland will vote on move to Big Ten
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland’s decision to stay in the Atlantic Coast Conference or join the Big Ten comes down to tradition versus money.
Given the plight of the school’s struggling athletic program, the Terrapins’ stature as a charter member of the ACC might not mean as much as the prospect of playing a home football game against, say, Ohio State, and being part of a league that generates more revenue.
The Board of Regents is scheduled to meet today to discuss the joining the Big Ten. If Maryland approves the move and applies for admission, Rutgers is expected to follow suit and leave the Big East. That would leave the Big Ten with 14 schools.
