Scott foresees Pac-12 team playing game in China

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott says he believes a team from the

conference will be playing a football game in China ”in the not

too distant future.”

Scott, speaking at halftime of the Fiesta Bowl, said Stanford

and Notre Dame would like to play in China as early as 2013. Scott

said that might be too soon, based on information he gathered in a

recent trip to Beijing.

He said he plans to have further discussions on the subject with

officials from Stanford and Notre Dame. Scott said that if it’s not

2013, it is just a matter of time before the Pac-12 introduces

college football to the world’s largest country.
