USC and UCLA moving to the Big Ten will have effects throughout the college football world. But perhaps other leagues are taking it as a chance to plan their next move.
While it makes sense for the Big Ten to try to lure Notre Dame or add more Pac-12 schools, the conference doesn't need it now that it has L.A. locked down.
The conferences' decision to block a 12-team, six-automatic-bid CFP proposal back in January may be one of the most ill-advised in the history of college athletics.
The conference's current media deal is up after 2024 and its future could be in doubt by then too if teams head to the Big 12 after USC and UCLA join the Big Ten.
