Formerly of the Big 12 Conference, the University of Colorado Buffaloes will join Arizona and the other nine Pacific 10 Conference teams, according to multiple news sources.

“”The University of Colorado is a great fit for the conference both academically and athletically and we are incredibly excited to welcome Colorado to the Pac-10.””

Heavy rumors of a powerhouse Pac-16 Conference have included the additions of Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, along with Colorado.
