USC, UCLA Joining Big Ten

Update (9:33 p.m.)

California’s two most notable schools, USC and UCLA, are moving to the Big Ten in 2024

Word first got out via Pac 12 Hotline’s Jon Wilner, and became official hours later.

USC has been in what is now the PAC 12 since 1922, and UCLA joined in 1928. The schools have created one of the more notable rivalries in college sports, playing for the Victory Bell in football every season.

The teams had their first meeting in 1929, which was a 76-0 USC win. The Trojans lead the series 51-33-7.

In basketball, the schools first met in Feburary of 1928, and UCLA in particular has made a name for itself since, winning 11 national championships.

The schools would give the Big Ten a historic rivalry, but pretty much everybody would agree that it wouldn’t make any geographic sense.

Update (7:45 p.m.)-

It’s official.
