Big Ten & Pac 12 conferences find way to play ball more often

The Big Ten Conference is entering a new arrangement with the Pac-12.

Beginning in the 2017 football season, each team from both leagues will play against one another. The inter-conference match-ups will start as soon as next season in other sports.

The agreement also will provide more content for the Big Ten Network and the soon-to-start Pac-12 TV network.

Administrators and conference staff members will meet in the coming year to continue to work out details of the collaboration.

Between the 24 teams, there are more than 17,000 student-athletes competing on more than 550 teams.
