The options for the Pac-12 to expand in order to remain are numerous, ranging from San Diego State to SMU and a bevy of candidates in between.

Could the league and commissioner George Kliavkoff decide to simply remain at 10 teams?

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin is joined by Spencer C McLaughlin (Esq.) to present the case for the Pac-12 going back to being the Pac-10.

Meanwhile, 4-star 2023 QB Jayden Rashada has had one of the wildest recruitments of the year, could he end up in the Pac-12?

Also, some listeners have inquired as to the possibility of adding certain high-level FCS programs.

One day, programs such as Montana could fit in the Pac-12, but that is not an immediate option as the conference mulls over expansion.
