With the SEC set to add Oklahoma and Texas in the coming years, the college sports world is debating what should happen to the other major conferences.
The ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12 are reportedly set to announce an “alliance” on Tuesday, but more moves could be coming. It would not be surprising if a conference like the Big Ten attempts to add another major school or two.
But what schools should the Big Ten target?
Paul Finebaum has an idea.
The ESPN college football analyst suggested two major Pac-12 programs as targets for the Big Ten during his appearance on Monday morning.
“Oregon is a very attractive national brand and then one of the biggest brands of all-time in college football, you can say it, USC,” Finebaum said Monday on Keyshawn, JWill and Zubin, per 247Sports. “That would make the Big Ten as powerful as the SEC or the ACC with Notre Dame, but other than that, there aren’t that many cards.”
Finebaum is right – there aren’t a ton of extremely attractive options for the Big Ten.
However, the Pac-12 has some very formidable and historic programs that would likely have a positive impact on the conference.
The next couple of years are going to be very interesting.
