The Mountain West Is Exploring How To Become the New Pac-12

Sep 8, 2023

Officials at Oregon State and Washington State have expressed their desire to rebuild the existing Pac-12. But a version of the conference could still exist in the future even if that effort fails.

Within the Mountain West, the most commonly discussed idea is a reverse merger with Oregon State and Washington State, one source told Front Office Sports. Many in the Mountain West are in favor of renaming the conference the “Pac-12.”

Before Stanford and Cal announced their move to the ACC, Mountain West Commissioner Gloria Nevarez told FOS that she was “open to the conversation” of a reverse merger, but said the conference would have to engage in “due diligence.”
