ACC, SEC Reportedly Reject West Virginia

West Virginia is the latest Big East team that has interest in leaving the COnference, but according to Brett McMurphy, they have not had the success of Pittsburgh and Syracuse. West Virginia has been denied by not one but two conferences.

Multiple Big East sources said they have been told by WVU officials that WVU rejected by ACC & SEC

This comes as a bit of a surprise because it was widly assumed that West Virginia would be the next team to bolt the Big East. I think most people assumed they would go to the SEC, so the fact that they applied to two conferences really shows just how desperate they are to get out of their Conference. But for some reason, they may be forced to stay there.
