Deion Sanders let slip on the broadcast of the National Championship between TCU and Georgia that plans were in the works for a week 0 game between Colorado and Arizona State.

The plan has since been axed, and that might be better for the Pac-12 anyway for Coach Prime’s first game come Fall of 2023.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, I continue to examine in-depth potential expansion candidates for the Conference.

Each school brings something unique (or many things) to the table, and that is perhaps no more true for a school than for SMU.

I ‘present the case’ for adding the Mustangs out of the American conference.

The transfer portal, still open for a couple more days, continues to see a flurry of movement.

Are some schools set up to benefit more than others when it comes to adding players from other schools?
