The Pac-12 is staying at 12 for the time being.
The conference said Thursday that it would not be adding any teams in the wake of the departure of Oklahoma and Texas to the SEC. With the Big 12 sitting at eight teams after OU and UT leave the conference, it seemed possible that the remaining teams would be potential candidates for the Pac-12, Big Ten or ACC.
"Following consultation with our presidents, chancellors and athletic directors, the Pac-12 Conference has made the decision to not pursue expansion of our membership at this time," the conference said in a statement. "This decision was made following extensive internal discussion and analysis, and is based on the current competitive strength and cohesiveness of our 12 universities. It is also grounded in our confidence in our ability as a conference to best support our student-athletes and to grow and thrive both academically and athletically."
