Pac 10 to Change Name Upon Expansion

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Pac-10 will become the Pac-12 as soon as Colorado and Utah officially join the league.

The 95-year old league once known as the Pacific 8 announced Tuesday that it would change the conference's name when the two new members join.

Colorado has said it expects to be playing in the new Pac-12 by 2012-13.

The conference last expanded in 1978, when Arizona and Arizona State joined the four California schools and four Pacific Northwest schools to go from being the Pac-8 to the Pac-10.
