The Pac-12 Conference has been facing unsolvable difficulties for a while now. UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans have already left the conference and are set to be part of the Big Ten from August next year. But the situation seems to get worse as the media rights of the Pac-12 expire next year, and there aren’t any interested parties to renew it. Amidst the mishaps, Deion Sanders posted a video on Instagram thanking the fans and ending it by saying, “We Coming“. Does this perhaps indicate a move of his team from the conference?

Although nothing is certain, there are clear indications that the Buffaloes and Arizona Wildcats are the top two coveted teams for the league. If Pac-12 manages to sign a huge deal, the story could change. But big media houses are not even interested in Pac-12 as they have started to lose teams. It’s only a matter of time before official announcements are made.
