The PAC-12 CONFERENCE is a collegiate athletic conference that operates in the Western United States , participating in 22 sports at the NCAA Division I level. Its football teams compete in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS; formerly Division I-A), the higher of two tiers of NCAA Division I football competition.

The conference's 12 members are located in the states of Arizona
Arizona
, California
California
, Colorado
Colorado
, Oregon
Oregon
, Utah
Utah
, and Washington . They include each state's flagship public university, four additional public universities, and two private research universities.

The modern Pac-12 conference formed after the disbanding of the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC), whose principal members founded the ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION OF WESTERN UNIVERSITIES (AAWU) in 1959. The conference previously went by the names BIG FIVE, BIG SIX, PACIFIC-8, and PACIFIC-10. The Pac-12 moniker was adopted in 2011 with the addition of Colorado
Colorado
and Utah
Utah
.

Nicknamed the "Conference of Champions," the Pac-12 has won more NCAA national championships in team sports than any other conference in history. The top three schools with the most NCAA team championships are members of the Pac-12: UCLA , Stanford , and USC , in that order. Washington\'s national title in women's rowing in 2017 was the 500th NCAA championship won by a Pac-12 school.

The current commissioner of the conference is Larry Scott . Scott replaced Thomas C. Hansen, who retired in July 2009 after 26 years in that position. Prior to joining the Pac-10, Scott was Chairman and CEO of the Women\'s Tennis
Tennis
Association .

PACIFIC COAST CONFERENCE

Main article: Pacific Coast Conference

The roots of the Pac-12 Conference
Pac-12 Conference
go back to December 2, 1915, when the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC) was founded at a meeting at the Imperial Hotel in Portland, Oregon
Oregon
. Charter members were the University of California
California
(now University of California, Berkeley), University of Washington, University of Oregon, and Oregon Agricultural College (now Oregon
Oregon
State University). The PCC began play in 1916.

One year later, Washington State College (now Washington State University) joined the league, followed by Stanford University
Stanford University
in 1918.

In 1922, the PCC expanded to eight teams with the admission of USC and Idaho . Montana joined the Conference in 1924, and in 1928, the PCC grew to 10 members with the addition of UCLA .

For many years, the conference split into two divisions for basketball and baseball – a Southern Division comprising the four California
California
schools and a Northern Division comprising the six schools in the Pacific Northwest
Pacific Northwest
.

In 1950 , Montana departed to join the Mountain States
Mountain States
Conference . The PCC continued as a nine-team league through June 1959.

AAWU (BIG FIVE AND BIG SIX)

Following "pay-for-play" scandals at California, USC, UCLA, and Washington, the PCC disbanded in June 1959. Ten months earlier in August 1958, these four schools agreed to form a new conference that would take effect the following summer. When the four schools and Stanford began discussions for a new conference in 1959, retired Admiral Thomas J. Hamilton interceded and suggested the schools consider creating a national "power conference" (Hamilton had been a key player, head coach, and athletic director at Navy , and was the current athletic director at Pittsburgh ). Nicknamed the "Airplane Conference ," the five former PCC schools would have played with other major academically-oriented schools, including Army , Navy , Air Force , Notre Dame , Penn , Penn State , Duke , and Georgia Tech among others. The effort fell through when a Pentagon official vetoed the idea and the service academies backed out.

On July 1, 1959 , the new ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION OF WESTERN UNIVERSITIES was launched, with California, UCLA, USC, and Washington as the four charter members. Stanford joined during the first month. Hamilton left Pittsburgh to become the first commissioner of the AAWU, and remained for twelve years. The conference also was popularly known as the BIG FIVE from 1960 to 1962. When Washington State joined in 1962 , the conference became informally known as the BIG SIX.

PACIFIC-8

Oregon
Oregon
and Oregon
Oregon
State joined in the summer of 1964 . With the addition of the two Oregon
Oregon
schools, the conference was known unofficially as the PACIFIC ATHLETIC CONFERENCE, and then the PACIFIC-8 (as there already was a major conference called the Big Eight ). In 1968 , the AAWU formally renamed itself the PACIFIC-8 CONFERENCE, or PAC-8 for short. The Pac-8 did not allow a second bowl team from the conference until the 1975 season.

Idaho was never invited to join the AAWU; the Vandals were independent for four years until the formation of the Big Sky Conference in 1963 , and were independent in football until 1965 .

PACIFIC-10

Final Pac-10 Conference logo

In 1978 , the conference added Arizona
Arizona
and Arizona
Arizona
State from the Western Athletic Conference , becoming the PACIFIC-10 CONFERENCE or PAC-10. The invitations to the schools were extended in December 1976, and the expansion formally announced in May 1977.

In 1986, the Pac-10 began sponsoring women's athletics. Prior to this time members' women's teams competed with other large universities on the Pacific coast in either the Northern Pacific Conference or the Western Collegiate Athletic Association .

In the mid-1990s the conference expressed interest in admitting the University of Colorado
Colorado
and the University of Texas after the collapse of the Southwest Conference . Texas expressed an interest in joining a strong academic conference, but joined three fellow Southwest Conference schools (Texas A&M , Texas Tech , and Baylor ) to merge with the Big Eight Conference to form the Big 12 Conference
Big 12 Conference
in 1996 . Colorado
Colorado
elected to remain in the newly-formed Big 12.

Before the addition of Colorado
Colorado
and Utah
Utah
in 2011, only the Ivy League had maintained its membership for a longer time than the Pac-10 among Division I conferences. Commissioner Larry Scott said on February 9, 2010, that the window for expansion was open for the next year as the conference began negotiations for a new television deal. Speaking on a conference call to introduce former Big 12 commissioner Kevin Weiberg as his new deputy, Scott talked about possibly adding new teams to the conference and launching a new television network. Scott, the former head of the Women's Tennis
Tennis
Association, took over the conference in July 2009. In his first eight months on the job, he saw growing interest from the membership over the possibility of adding teams for the first time since Arizona
Arizona
and Arizona
Arizona
State joined the conference in 1978.

In early June 2010, there were reports that the Pac-10 was considering adding up to six teams to the conference: the University of Texas, Texas A&M University
Texas A&M University
, Texas Tech University , the University of Oklahoma , Oklahoma State University , and the University of Colorado.

On June 10, 2010, the University of Colorado
Colorado
Boulder officially accepted an invitation to join the Pac-10 Conference, effective starting with the 2012–2013 academic year. The school later announced it would join the conference a year earlier than previously announced, in the 2011–2012 academic year.

The most frequently played rivalries in the conference are the Civil War between Oregon
Oregon
and Oregon
Oregon
State (120 meetings through 2016) and the Big Game between Stanford and California
California
(119 meetings). These rivalries are among the ten most played rivalries in Division I FBS football .

The two newest members, Colorado
Colorado
and Utah, had a football rivalry that had been dormant since 1962 – both were conference rivals previously in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (now a Division II conference), and later the now-defunct Mountain States
Mountain States
Conference (also known as the Skyline Conference). Even after Colorado
Colorado
joined what became the Big 12 in 1948 (the conference was then known popularly as the Big 7 Conference ), the two schools continued their football rivalry for over a decade before ending it after the 1962 season. With the two schools being placed in the same division for football starting in 2011, the rivalry was revived with their 58th meeting during the 2011 season.

All of the California
California
schools consider each other major rivals, due to the culture clash between Northern and Southern California. California
California
and UCLA have a rivalry rooted in their shared history as the top programs within the University of California
California
system. Stanford and USC have a rivalry rooted in their shared history as the only private schools in the Pac-12. California
California
and USC also have a long history, having played each other every year in football since 1916.

Oregon, Oregon
Oregon
State, Washington, and Washington State all consider each other major rivals due to their proximity and long history. The Oregon–Washington rivalry is sometimes referred to as the Border War .

Arizona
Arizona
and New Mexico have a recently renewed rivalry game, based upon when they were both members of the WAC and both states were longtime territories before being admitted as states in 1912. They played for the Kit Carson Rifle trophy, which was no longer used starting with their meeting in the 1997 Insight Bowl.

USC and Notre Dame have an intersectional rivalry (See Notre Dame–USC rivalry ). The games in odd-numbered years are played in South Bend in mid-October, while the games in even-numbered years are usually played in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
in late November.

Stanford and Notre Dame also have an intersectional rivalry (See Notre Dame–Stanford football rivalry ). The schedule of the Stanford–Notre Dame rivalry mirrors that of USC–Notre Dame. The games in even-numbered years are played at Notre Dame in mid-October, while the games in odd-numbered years are played at Stanford in late November.

The isolated rural campuses of Washington State and Idaho are eight miles (13 km) apart on the Palouse , creating a natural border war known as the Battle of the Palouse . Idaho rejoined FBS in 1996.

Utah
Utah
and BYU have a fierce rivalry nicknamed the Holy War that goes back to 1896.

Colorado
Colorado
also has a rivalry with in-state rival Colorado
Colorado
State called the Rocky Mountain Showdown .

With the NCAA permanently approving 12-game schedules in college football beginning in 2006 , the Pac-10– alone among major conferences in doing so – went to a full nine-game conference schedule. Previously, the schools did not play one non-rival opponent, resulting in an eight-game conference schedule (four home games and four away). In 2010, the last season before the arrival of Colorado and Utah, the only other BCS conference that played a round-robin schedule was the Big East. The schedule consisted of one home and away game against the two schools in each region, plus the game against the primary in-state rival.

On October 21, 2010 the Pac-10 announced the creation of divisions and a championship game in football, to be used when Colorado

A nine-game conference schedule is being maintained, with five games within the assigned division and four games from the opposite division. The four California

teams will play each other every season. Consequently, the four non- California

teams in each division will only play one of the two California
California
teams from the opposite division each year.

The Pac-12 Football Championship Game features the North Division Champion against the South Division Champion. The divisional champions are determined based on record in all conference games (both divisional and cross-divisional). The first three championship games was played at the home stadium of the participant with the better overall conference record. Since 2014, the Championship Game has been hosted at Levi\'s Stadium in Santa Clara, California
