UCLA, USC Announce Move to Big Ten Conference

UCLA and USC will both leave the Pac-12 Conference in 2024, announcing Thursday they will join the Big Ten Conference in a move that sent shock waves across the world of collegiate athletics.

The shift is a major blow for the “Conference of Champions,” robbing the Pac-12 of its two premiere athletic programs.

“Over the past three years, we have worked hard to ground our university decisions in what is best for our students,” USC President Carol L. Folt said in a statement. “With the Big Ten, we are joining a storied conference that shares our commitment to academic excellence and athletic competitiveness, and we are positioning USC and our student-athletes for long-term success and stability amidst the rapidly evolving sports media and collegiate athletics landscapes. We are delighted to begin this new chapter in 2024.”
