Pac-12 Centennial Day celebrated across the conference
Dec. 2, 2015 marks 100 years since the Pac-12 Conference was founded as the Pacific Coast Conference in Portland, Ore. Cities across the Pac-12 footprint have officially declared today “Pac-12 Conference Centennial Day” to commemorate the founding of the conference.
On Dec. 2, 1915, representatives from the University of Oregon, the University of Washington, Oregon State University, and the University of California-Berkeley came together to create an athletics conference devoted to both academic and athletic excellence. Today the Pac-12 comprises 12 leading universities that span the Western United States and boasts more national championships than any other conference.
