Regents set date to decide UCLA's Big Ten move

The University of California regents will decide Dec. 14 whether

The UC regents discussed UCLA’s potential move at recent meetings but included it as an action item on the Thursday agenda. In September, UC regents general counsel Charles Robinson said the board had the authority to block a move.

UCLA on Tuesday sent the regents a document outlining the school’s financial plans for travel, academic support, mental health services, nutrition and other areas surrounding the conference move, as well as a survey of Bruins athletes about their thoughts on switching.

UCLA chancellor Gene Block said Thursday that increased revenue from the Big Ten would prevent the school from having to tighten its athletic budget and possibly cut certain sports, The Athletic reported.

The Pac-12 is expected to finalize its new media rights agreement after a decision about UCLA’s future is reached.
