Pac-12 Expansion: Which Four Teams Will the Pac-12 Take?
Pac-12 expansion talks are just starting, but it's not too early to speculate who the Pac-12 will take. Reports yesterday suggested Oklahoma, but if Oklahoma joins then won't Oklahoma State follow? If those two teams join then who would be the other two?
BYU is a likely candidate, but if BYU joins could Notre Dame be interested? Both teams are independent and both teams usually play teams in the Pac-12. Notre Dame for example plays USC and Stanford every year and even though they play Big Ten teams and that conference seems more logical when it comes to the geography, but the Pac-12 would welcome Notre Dame with open arms.
Adding Notre Dame and BYU would also add a sufficient amount of money to the conference as would Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. All four teams have great programs, some storied and some on the rise, but all four programs offer stiff competition that would make the Pac-12 a power conference.
If the Pac-12 is going to start recruiting teams, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, BYU and Notre Dame need to be at the top of the list. Adding these four teams would make the Pac-12 one of the premier conferences in the country and would give them a chance to compete with the SEC for top honors.
