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.
