Pac-12The rumors, speculation, and conversations about another potentially earth-shattering change in the college football landscape often have Oregon at the center of them.

Speculation quickly emerged about the Big Ten after USC and UCLA announced they would be heading there, leaving the Pac-12 ahead of the 2024 athletics season.

Is the Big 12 a more viable future home for Oregon athletics? On today’s episode of Locked On Ducks, I look at a potential conference realignment for Oregon.

One listener sends in a question about what a hybrid conference might look like between the Pac-12 and the Big 12.

The depth and caliber of teams could certainly be viable, but it’s more likely that schools leave for the Big 12 en mass rather than having Big 12 schools join the Pac-12.

With so much unknown and the demise of the Pac-12 seemingly imminent, it can be hard to keep in perspective the positives that could come from this whole situation.

The prospect of having more high-level regular-season games in the conference slate is just one thing that could be an upgrade.
