Big Ten says no current plans to expand



PARK RIDGE, Ill. (AP) — The Big Ten Conference says it’s not looking at another expansion — for now.

The 12-team league said Friday that its Council of Presidents/Chancellors met recently and there is no plan to “actively” engage in expansion now “or at any time in the foreseeable future, barring a significant shift in the current intercollegiate athletic landscape.”

The Big Ten added Nebraska from the Big 12 in July. The Big 12 also lost Colorado to the Pac-12 and another Big 12 team, Texas A&M, this week confirmed its interest in joining the Southeastern Conference.

Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany said there are no current plans to seek a new member.
