Report: Big Ten’s ‘wish list’ for convention expansion includes ND, Oregon, Stanford, UNC

The Big Ten have their eyes set on four additional teams for expansion – two more from the Pac-12, a surprise team from Notre Dame and the ACC.

Jeff Erman of 247Sports tweeted Monday that the Big Ten still wants to join the league, with four particular teams on its wish list: Notre Dame, Oregon, Stanford and North Carolina. This, of course, was supposed to be the league’s wish list and does not guarantee they would make a move to those programs, but it at least reflects what the Big Ten is thinking of expanding.

Last week, the Big Ten made big headlines when it combined USC and UCLA with the Pac-12 to give it 16 schools. Soon after it was reported that the league was looking to add even more schools to join the league, with Oregon, Washington and Notre Dame joining the league. However, it now looks like Stanford and North Carolina have two more programs to keep a close eye on going forward.

There’s no sign there will be a move anytime soon, but don’t be surprised if the Big Ten makes another big move soon.
