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