Big Ten & Pac-12 reach long-term scheduling deal

Two of the most storied athletic conferences in college football history have agreed to a partnership that could radically change college athletics as we know it.

While details aren't clear yet, this move helps grow each conference without the difficulty of true expansion. The partnership will allow both conferences to be run independently, while also influencing the overall scheduling process in the future.

It means that it's possible Urban Meyer and his Ohio State Buckeyes take on Kyle Whittingham's Utah Utes.

It also means Utah's out of conference schedule could dramatically change in the coming years - influencing games with Utah State and, of course, BYU.

We'll know the extent of those changes when further details are released.
