ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is willing to listen if Oklahoma or anyone else wants to join his conference.

Speaking before No. 3 Oregon played No. 4 LSU at Cowboys Stadium, Scott acknowledged that "schools have reached out to us."

He said that the courtship is different from last year, when the league was looking for expansion candidates. He repeated said the conference was not doing anything to seek new members.

He added that he had to listen to pitches from interested schools "to evaluate what might be in the best interest of our members."
