Following the ACC, Pac-12, and Big-10 alliance made official this week, the Pac-12 released a statement just before noon on Thursday, August 26th announcing the conference will not look to expand and add schools.
Pac-12 Statement on Expansion:
Following consultation with our Presidents, Chancellors and Athletic Directors, the Pac-12 Conference has made the decision to not pursue expansion of our membership at this time. This decision was made following extensive internal discussion and analysis, and is based on the current competitive strength and cohesiveness of our 12 universities. It is also grounded in our confidence in our ability as a conference to best support our student-athletes and to grow and thrive both academically and athletically.
