The Big Ten is in the final stages of negotiating an expansion to 18 teams and adding the Universities of Oregon and Washington, industry sources told Yahoo Sports.
Arizona is rumored to be in negotiations with the Big 12. ASU and Utah are expected to follow.
I’m sad about this. I played in the PAC 12 (not 12 then). Even though my son played in the Big 10 I see myself as a PAC 12 guy. The PAC 12 has been my connection to a place I left thirty years ago. It’s going to be an adjustment to think UCLA playing Ohio State is a thing.
What’s going to be real weird is going to the Rose Bowl or Coliseum to watch UCLA play “that other team from across town” in a Big 10 game.
