Students on campus say they are excited about the big move and that it will bring more interest to, not only the Cards, but to the city and the state.
U of L junior Aaron Weber says it will bring in fans to watch top teams take on the Cardinals, "I get to see Notre Dame, Florida State, Miami…just a lot of teams considering how last year, how boring it kinda got near the end. It's just exciting to have week-in and week-out possibly top level people coming."
Senior Paul Maddox says it will help both the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. "I think it'll bring in a bigger scope, not just one school being in a big conference but now two schools being in a big conference,” Maddox says, “will help with the ACC, SEC rivalry."
The move to the ACC officially takes effect at midnight Monday night.
