Welcome to the Pac-12

A new era in west coast sports. Today is officially day 1 of the Pac-12.

Colorado and Utah are joining the mix to make up 12 teams in the conference.

For Utah, it is a huge step up with better competition, which could mean a better bowl game come the December.

For Colorado, it is a lateral move, but certainly will not hurt the team.

It has been 33 years since the last time the conference changed.

Cal and Stanford remain part of the Pac-12. This season, the conference will enjoy a new television contract worth more than $225 million a year.
