We’ve all been hearing a lot about the possible expansion of conferences in major college football. Over this past weekend, presidents of both the Pac 10 and the Big Ten held meetings in San Francisco and Chicago, respectively.
The Pac 10 recognizing that they are incredibly top heavy in the conference with only USC being considered an elite level program, made it known that they are actively pursuing an expansion to 16 teams.
