Although nothing is a done deal, the Big Ten has been reportedly trying to expand their conference, in an effort to “change the college sports landscape.”
An inside source told CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander:
“Everything is on the table.”
This would indeed change the landscape of the Big Ten, as USC and UCLA would be the first ever schools from the west coast to play in the conference..
This move would expand the Big Ten to 16 teams, which would be equivalent to the SEC with the addition of Texas and Oklahoma. And although this would strengthen the Big Ten, it would be a massive blow to the PAC-12, considering the two schools have arguably the best athletics in the conference.
Needless to say, if this deal follows through, it would cause yet another massive shakeup in conferences.
