Pac-12, Big Ten Dissolve Plans For Collaborated Schedule

The Pac-12 and Big Ten announced on Friday they would not continue with their plans to create a coordinated schedule between the two major college football conferences. Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said in a press release that the Pac-12 would need to pursue "maximum flexibility" instead of locking into a 12-game schedule:

"After extensive deliberation and consultation with member institutions, television partners and others, the Pac-12 and Big Ten have decided not to pursue the previously announced plans for enhanced scheduling collaboration across all sports at this time."

The two sides had announced plans in late December for an expanded relationship that would have increased the number of games between the two conferences. But, given the Pac-12's already robust conference schedule, additional non-conference commitments proved to great of a logistical problem.
