BREAKING: Oregon, Washington Finalizing Deal to Join Big 10 Conference
By Space Coast Daily // August 4, 2023
Big Ten vote is expected to take place this evening
(ESPN) – Oregon and Washington are finalizing a deal to join the Big Ten, sources told ESPN, a move that continues to dwindle the Pac-12 and puts that conference’s future in the crosshairs.
The schools are expected to formally apply for membership Friday, sources said, and a Big Ten vote is expected to take place this evening, according to sources.
The Big Ten vote is expected to be unanimous for them to join in 2024, sources said, despite initial pushback from schools in the league on admitting the two schools.
The finances of the move are not immediately clear, but both Oregon and Washington will receive only a partial share of the conference allotment through the length of its upcoming television deal, which goes through the 2029-30 school year.
