Report: Pac-12 not expanding yet, if it does Boise State, San Diego State might get look
Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said that his conference is not looking to expand yet, but if they do Boise State and San Diego State might get a look.
“In my short three years-plus as commissioner, I’ve learned to never say never,” Scott said.
Scott says his conference feels good about the conference being set at 12 teams and said there is no reason to go beyond that number.
“When we expanded in the past we looked at them because they are prominent schools in the West, with very strong athletics programs, in markets we are not in,” Scott said when asked if those two schools would get a look, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. ”There’s a lot of criteria that we looked at last time, that I’m sure we’d look at again. If we were to look at expanding again, I’m sure both those schools would be on the list. But, we don’t have any plans.”
Boise State and San Diego State, both currently compete in the Mountain West Conference, will play in the Big East conference next year.
