After the bombshell news that UCLA & USC are joining the Big Ten Conference in 2024, I put together a map showing what the two superconferences could end up looking like.
I think Stanford and Notre Dame would be likely candidates for the next two expansion slots for the Big Ten. Possibly Oregon, but I'm using KFAB Husker Insider Sean Callahan's suggestion of Stanford as a way to get Notre Dame to commit to the conference.
Under a "pod" scheduling model, the divisions (for lack of a better term) could look like this:
Big Ten Pod 1 (West)
UCLA, USC, Stanford, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota
Big Ten Pod 2 (Central)
Wisconsin, Purdue, Illinois, Northwestern, Indiana, Notre Dame
Big Ten Pod 3 (East)
Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Maryland, Rutgers
