Pacific 10 Conference is growing and getting stronger

The Pacific 10 Conference doesn’t officially change its logo to “12” until next season, when Utah and Colorado become members, but we can’t wait.
How about that Pac-12?
Forget the bottom feeders, Washington State and Colorado — every conference has a couple of those.
The mighty Southeastern, for example, currently tolerates Vanderbilt and Georgia.

If you count Utah, which we have already welcomed in with a gift bag, the Pac has five schools ranked in the top 18 of Sunday’s Associated Press poll. And the No. 18 is USC, recognized for years below Mason-Dixon as the only serious Pac-10 player.
