“Student-athletes have been and will remain the focal point of the Big Ten, ACC and PAC-12 Conferences” Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said in a statement. “Today, through this alliance, we furthered our commitment to our student-athletes by prioritizing our academics and athletics value systems. We are creating opportunities for student-athletes to have elite competition and are taking the necessary steps to shape and stabilize the future of college athletics.”
