San Francisco -- The Pac-12 Conference will feature North and South divisions for football competition next season, league officials said Thursday.
The Pac-10 agreed this year to accept Colorado and Utah into its membership, growing the league and changing the name. It also set up a situation for divisional play and a conference championship game in football. League officials, however, said other sports won't be divided for conference play.
The Pac-12's North Division will include California, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Washington and Washington State. The South will include Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Southern Cal, UCLA and Utah.
