According to Rivals.com College Football, the Pac-10 is set to invite 6 teams from the Big 12: Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado.
Left out in the fields would be Iowa State, Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska and Missouri. Just like what the Big 10 wants to do with their possible expansion, the Pac-10 is doing it in the name of cash and cable TV. A lot of rivalries would be preserved in the 6 teams invited to go to the Pac-10. Of course, the Nebraska-Colorado rivalry may not last.
Lest we forget that the Big 10 could go after Missouri and Nebraska from the Big 12, as well as Pittsburgh, Rutgers, and Syracuse from the Big East and Big East part-timer Notre Dame.
The Pac-16 (or whatever it would be called) would definitely be a super-conference. The article also has rumors of Texas A&M going to the SEC.
Who knew the Big 12 could be another victim of the Big 10/Pac 10 invasions? The Big 12 AND The Big East need to fight back.
More on this story as it develops.
