After schools jumping ship, the Pac-12 is looking to fill their conference. It now looks like they're talking to ACC to join forces to compete with the Big Ten and SEC...

The ACC and Pac-12 have discussed what has been termed a "loose partnership" that could end the season with the conferences playing a "championship game" in Las Vegas, sources confirm to CBS Sports.

The concept, believed to have been proposed by the ACC, is seen as a way for the conferences' common rightsholder, ESPN, to increase the value of their current media rights contracts.

It's not likely this proposal would have much impact considering ESPN has cost certainty with the ACC in a contract that lasts through 2036. The Pac-12 is trying to survive after the loss of USC and UCLA to the Big Ten in 2024. Rights for Pac-12 teams without the California powers are now worth about $30 million annually, down from approximately $42 million per program with the Trojans and Bruins in the fold.

The PAC 12's recent history of partnerships with other conferences says this will end well.

To be fair, the PAC-12 Championship Game should be in Vegas (it's the perfect location for the conference and fans).
