The Pac-12 Conference is currently made up of 12 member schools all based geographically in the western U.S. The Pac-12 can trace its lineage back to 1915, and is defined not only by its geography, but also by the academic prestige of its schools.

However, two of its current members, USC and UCLA, are expected to leave in 2024. USC and UCLA are planning to join The Big Ten. As a result, the Pac-12 will be reduced to 10 member schools.

The Pac-12 used to be known as the Pac-10—when it was made up of 10 member institutions from 1978 until 2010. And before that it was known as the Pac-8 from 1968 until 1978. The Pac-8 became the Pac-10 when the University of Arizona and Arizona State University were added to the league. In 2010, the Pac-10 announced the additions of the University of Utah and University of Colorado, bringing its member schools to 12.
