Big Ten, Pac-12 suspend scheduling agreement



CHICAGO -- The Big Ten and Pac-12 have scrapped their plan to schedule games against each other in all sports. 
   Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany says the league recently learned from Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott that coordinating a non-conference football schedule for 24 teams across two leagues was too complicated to pull off. He noted the Pac-12's nine-game conference schedule and previous non-conference commitments. 
   Scott says in a joint statement released Friday that the Pac-12 wants to maintain its nine-game conference schedule while keeping as much flexibility in out-of-conference scheduling as possible. 
   Scott says the two leagues will continue a close relationship, including their long-standing partnership with the Rose Bowl.
