That scheduling partnership between the Big Ten and Pac-12 isn't scheduled to begin for several more years, but when the deal was announced, it was made clear that deals could start falling into place ahead of time. According to one report, the Michigan Wolverines and Utah Utes are going to fire something up:
Pac-12 sources: U-M close to home/home deal w/Utah starting 2014. Thurs. night return visit to Salt Lake to open '15 CF season on table #fb— Chris Balas (@Balas_Wolverine) June 12, 2012
I don't believe this would officially officially be part of the official (official) series, which was supposed to begin leagues-wide in 2017, but more like a getting-to-know-each-other kind of thing.
An Urban Meyer series between Utah and Ohio State would be really something, wouldn't it? Anyone feeling bold enough to predict Meyer would still be around for one of those beginning in 2016? Still, one of the Big Ten's premier programs pairing up against the Pac-12's newest member makes for an interesting matchup.
It's interesting because they're football teams, and they're talking about playing each other! Hey, I'd like to watch that! Oh man, it's not even the middle of June yet.
