With the Pac-12 seemingly ready to collapse, teams are already scrambling to find another landing spot. Colorado and Arizona are two of those teams, and both are looking at a move to the Big 12 – especially Colorado.
According to multiple sources, the only teams wanted by the Big 12 are in fact Colorado and Arizona.
BREAKING: Only two #Pac12 teams wanted by #Big12 (keep some for #ACC), and still likely to come from "Four Corners", with #Buffs and #BearDown most likely. #SunDevils not out of the picture, but #Utes may be out…and I'm more than ok with that!! 🤣🤣🤣

Arizona State has also been recognized as a potential school for expansion, though it is not as likely. Utah, however, seems to be completely out of the picture.
This would put the Big 12 at a total of 14 schools spanning all across the United States. Without question this would make the conference the biggest geographically in the nation.
Despite never playing Arizona on the gridiron, the Mountaineers have met with Colorado before. The two sides split a home-and-home series with each team winning at home. West Virginia won the last matchup in Morgantown 35-24 in 2009.
