TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott has said the conference is not actively seeking new members.
If fact, if it were up to him, Scott would keep the conference just the way it is.
Speaking to reporters before Friday night's game between Arizona State and No. 21 Missouri, Scott said he would prefer the Pac-12 remain at 12 members instead of expanding to 16 teams. The conference expanded by two teams this year, adding Colorado and Utah, and Scott said he would like to see how the 12-team model will work before thinking about expanding.
Conference expansion talks have heated up in the past couple of weeks as numerous teams from the Big 12 expressed interest in moving to new conferences, including the Pac-12.
