The Big Ten and Pac-12 are set to announce a long-term scheduling agreement between the two rich and powerful conferences for all sports.
In football, the 12-team leagues are aiming to create a 12-game inter-conference schedule by the 2017 season.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott and Big 12 Commissioner Jim Delany were scheduled to hold a teleconference at 4 p.m. EST to discuss the details of the deal.
The Big Ten and Pac-12 have been Rose Bowl partners for decades.
