The Pac-12 and Big Ten have decided to suspend the previously announced scheduling collaboration, which would have included an annual football inter-conference series, due to logistical concerns. 

The Rose Bowl partners released a joint statement today:

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott: "After extensive deliberation and consultation with member institutions, television partners and others, the Pac-12 and Big Ten have decided not to pursue the previously announced plans for enhanced scheduling collaboration across all sports at this time. While we continue to value our close relationship, particularly our partnership in the Rose Bowl, the Pac-12 came to the conclusion that it's in our best interests to maintain our 9-game conference schedule and maximum flexibility in out-of- conference scheduling. Thus, the Pac-12 decided not to lock into the proposed mandatory 12-game schedule in football."
