(Newton-AP) -- An Atlantic Coast Conference delegation toured Boston College today (Monday) before heading to Syracuse in hopes of luring the Big East schools.

The nine-person group, including A-C-C commissioner John Swofford, visited the campus and met with the administration during the two-day visit.

Along with Miami, the two schools are considering leaving the Big East to join the A-C-C, which voted May 16th to begin wooing the schools.

The A-C-C is courting the three schools in hopes of becoming a twelve-team superconference that would add a lucrative football title game.

Boston College athletic director Gene DeFilippo has said that if Miami bolts the Big East, the Eagles, a charter member of the league, most likely would follow.
