Commissioner Kevin Warren, Big Ten Coach Comments on Adding USC, UCLA

Indianapolis, India – Ohio State football coach Ryan Day was at the golf course when he heard news that shook the college athletics world.

Day leaned out of his golf cart to alert his friend, UCLA coach Chip Kelly.

“Hey, we’re in the same convention now.”

Despite a nearly 30-hour, 2,300-mile one-way road trip, or five-hour flight from Ohio State to UCLA, Day and Kelly will now see each other more often. Well, not now, but in 2024, UCLA and USC will join the Big Ten – or Big 16 – making a big difference to the college game.
