The Pac-12 is down to just 2 members after this season, with several parties leaving the conference for the Big Ten, Big 12 and ACC.

Some questions have been raised to the remaining members of the conference, Washington State and Oregon State. A few questions may soon have answers, though.

According to a report from Ross Dellenger on Thursday morning, the 2 programs  are drawing nearer to a scheduling alliance with the Mountain West, which would have the teams in the league face a 7-game model with 1 matchup against OSU or WSU.

Dellenger later clarified that neither OSU nor WSU would be eligible for the Mountain West title game if this alliance is accepted. Games against OSU and WSU also would not count against league standings.

There is interest in a potential future merger according to the report.
