Even though the Big Ten and Pac-12 Conferences failed two years ago in putting together a formal scheduling agreement, you wouldn't know it from this week's football slate.
The leagues go head-to-head four times Saturday, and all are interesting early-season matchups: No. 16 UCLA at No. 23 Nebraska; No. 4 Ohio State at California; No. 20 Wisconsin at Arizona State; and No. 19 Washington vs. Illinois at Chicago's Soldier Field.
