College Football Rivalries involving Pac-10 Teams

The Pac-10 is an anomaly in college sports, in that each school within the conference has its own in-state, conference rivalry. One is an intracity rivalry, and another is within the same metropolitan area. In fact, the 10 teams that make up the Pac-10 can be divided into five major rivalries. Those are:

USC also has a long-standing rivalry with Notre Dame, meeting 75 times in the battle for the Jewelled Shillelagh.

Washington State also has a rivalry with the University of Idaho, due to the fact that they are located a mere eight miles away from each other. This rivarly is much less fiercely contested than the intra-state rivalry with Washington, and is generally considered to be more important to Idaho's fans than to WSU's.

Pac-10 Rumors

Some rumors have circulated among sports columnists and fans that the Pac-10 may one day look to add two more teams to its conference. The addition of two teams would create two divisions within the conference, similar to that of the Big-12, MAC, and the SEC. It has been speculated that the addition of two teams could lead to a season end football game to determine conference champion. Among some of the schools rumored to be sought after by the Pac-10 would be Utah & BYU. A more persistent rumor involves San Diego State University (SDSU) but a partner for SDSU never seems to materialize. This of course would require a major realignment and would hurt the Mountain West Conference by removing one or more of its top schools. With the Pac-10 currently (2005) planning a nine game conference schedule for football (as opposed to the current eight game schedule), this makes such rumors less likely to materialize. Never-the-less, these types of rumors still manage to make the rounds of college football circles. Categories: College athletics conferences ...

Pacific Ten Conference - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1216 words)
The University of Montana joined the Conference in 1924, and in 1928, the PCC grew to 10 members with the addition of UCLA.
The Pacific Coast Conference competed as a 10-team league until 1950, with the exception of 1943-45, when World War II curtailed intercollegiate athletic competition to a minimum.
The last cycle of conference realignments, from 2003 to 2005, was triggered by the move of only three schools from the Big East to the ACC—but resulted in a chain reaction that saw no fewer than 14 other Division I-A schools change their conference affiliation.

With 7 NCAA team championships in 1995-96, plus 31 NCAA individual titles, the Pacific-10 Conference--which combines 10 of the finest academic institutions in the nation--once again demonstrated it is the "Conference of Champions," thus continuing to live up to its billing as having the strongest overall intercollegiate athletic league in the country.
Included in this are 10 of 15 tennis crowns, 12 of 15 softball championships, 4 of the last 6 volleyball titles, and 6 of the last 8 golf and swimming and diving trophies.
