With the Rose Bowl between Wisconsin and Oregon looming Monday in Pasadena, the Big 10 and Pac 12 expanded on their already solid relationship. The conferences announced a plan Wednesday to meet more often in hopes of raising the national exposure for each conference.
Although the agreement will take place in all sports, the football field is where the biggest change will be noticed. Starting in 2017, each of the 12-teams in the Big 10 will have one non-conference game against a member of the Pac 12.
The Big 10 also confirmed that their Hoops Challenge with the ACC would not be affected by this agreement.
