    Conf Big10 USC, UCLA to Big 10?

    Jon Wilner

    @wilnerhotline

    Source: USC and UCLA are planning to leave for the Big Ten as early as 2024. Move *has not been finalized* at the highest levels of power.

    USC and UCLA are in negotiations to join the Big Ten conference, a source tells @SINow, confirming @wilnerhotline's report.


    A stunning but not all that surprising move: Teams are jockeying to get into the top two leagues of FBS - the SEC and B1G.

    Tech and WKU take their places in Pac-12.


    It'll be like the WAC all over again. Be ready for late kick-offs and long flights. Oh well, we'll just have to make the best of it.

    Said thing is we aren't go anymore. AAC looks as if the are/have gone after schools in higher population centers. Only other "geographical fit" would be the FunBelt

    I could see the Pac 12 looking at Oklahoma State, Kansas, and Texas Tech. The only MWC schools the Pac 12 would look at are probably Air Force and Colorado State. Boise State is a non-starter academically for the Pac 12. San Diego State might have a chance, but not much better than Boise.

    The Big 12 may "get aggressive" and look to add Arizona, Arizona State, Utah and Colorado, per @Brett_McMurphy

    The Big 12 wanted the Arizona schools last time we played musical chairs, Utah and Colorado is new to the mix.

    So if USC, UCLA to B1G and Arizona, Arizona State, Utah and Colorado to B12, what the next step for Pac#.

    Do they raid MWC & AAC / taking SDSU, Boise (MWC) and SMU, Memphis (AAC) / that gets back to Pac10. Would they take more from MWC?

    It sure looks like BYU panicked when it moved to the Big 12. The offer to the Pac10 would have been on the President's desk by now, might be anyway, who knows?

    The Big 12 is the one that panicked. Lots of buyer's remorse on its incoming additions now. A full Big 12/Pac 12 merger would be in the cards right now if it had held its water. But the 4 new incoming Big 12 schools muddy that water significantly.

    If the Big 12 takes the lead and tries to poach the Arizona and mountain schools from the Pac 12, the Pac 12 may get reduced to 6 with no good options left.
