Pitt commits excited about move to ACC 

September, 18, 2011
Chad Voytik's family was going to go to nearly all of his games next year regardless, but now they won't have to travel as far with the ACC announcing Sunday that Pittsburgh and Syracuse will be joining the ACC.

Voytik, a four-star quarterback from Cleveland, Tenn., is committed to the Panthers. There is no date set on when the Pitt will leave the Big East and join the conference, but it's likely to be sooner rather than the 27-month period the Big East mandates. So instead of Voytik's family traveling to Connecticut or New Jersey for road games, now they can make the much easier and shorter trips to South Carolina or Virginia or just about any current ACC school.

"I was so excited, I put it my Facebook status about Pitt joining the ACC," Voytik said shortly after the news became official Sunday.
