Big Ten, ACC, Pac-12 actively discussing scheduling alliance to counter SEC’s growing power

As reported by Kyle Boone by cbssports.com, The Big Ten, ACC and Pac-12 are actively engaged in discussions about forming a scheduling alliance, sources close to the conversations tell CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd. The Athletic’s Max Olson first reported these discussions Friday.

The reported alliance is likely focused on college football scheduling, an effort by the three Power Five conferences to counter the SEC, which has already added Oklahoma and Texas.

With the Big 12’s top two programs joining the SEC and this potential alliance including three of the remaining four power conferences, the Big 12 could find itself in particularly dire straits.

How an alliance between the Big Ten, ACC and Pac-12 might work remains a mystery, but as a trio, they could work together to combat the SEC’s power, which has only grown since adding Texas and Oklahoma to what will soon be a 16-team superconference.
