Such an agreement is likely to be similar to the Big-Ten ACC Challenge in college basketball that occurs each fall.
Despite the names of the conferences, the Big Ten and the Pac-12 both contain 12 teams each. While each conference recently expanded to add two teams, only the Pac-12 changed their conference’s title.
