The B1G is set to welcome UCLA and USC into the fold in 2024. Whether further expansion is imminent, especially with speculation surrounding Notre Dame potentially coming on board, remains to be seen.

That’s obviously not to mention the SEC’s own expansion as it adds Oklahoma and Texas from the Big 12 in 2025, student-athletes coming away with lucrative NIL deals, and the possibility that the College Football Playoff may expand when its current contract with ESPN ends after the 2025 season.

ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg caught up with Kevin Warren on Tuesday at B1G Media Days in Indianapolis, with the conference commissioner speaking about what he called the 2nd year of a 5-year “period of disruption” that is happening right now across college sports, and not just in football.

“I say disruption from a positive standpoint, because disruption then creates opportunity, and it will then set the market as far as where people are situated,” he told Rittenberg.

It’s hard to say what the college sports landscape will look like 5 years from now, much less 5 months or 5 weeks. And it will be interesting to see what the B1G, as well as other Power 5 conferences, will do to adapt to the changes.
