Long before last year’s Alliance with the ACC, the Big Ten and Pac-12 were historically aligned conferences. However, things have changed drastically during this offseason between the Rose Bowl conferences with the Big Ten adding prominent Pac-12 programs USC and UCLA in 2024.

During his conference’s recent media day, Pac-12 commissioner George Kliavkoff was asked about his working relationship with Big Ten counterpart Kevin Warren. Unsurprisingly, the USC and UCLA moves appear to have strained that relationship.

Kliavkoff also confirmed what was widely assumed: the Pac-12 won’t be continuing “The Alliance” with the Big Ten and ACC.
