Pac-10 Expansion Analysis, Part Three

Collegefootballnews’ Matthew Smith Looks at Pac-10 Expansion Possibilities, Part Three: Three-Divisional Format

Below is a sample four-year set of schedules for the proposed three-divisional format of a potential Pac-12. Again, it's a weird, kind of awkward system, but it can generate a solid set of matchups, with no team forced to be in the same division with a team far away and play them every year, and also balanced towards more interesting matchups between teams, somewhat like how the NFL slightly emphasizes matchups between teams of similar quality. Just to be clear, the schedules aren't ordered by week, just a list of home and away matchups each team would get in each year.

Sample Schedules, by Team and Year

Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4
