CHAMPAIGN (25 News Now) - The college sports world is still in shock over the Big Ten’s move to add USC and UCLA as Big Ten members.

With the addition of USC and UCLA, the Big Ten becomes a national conference and Illinois coach Brad Underwood is excited about the move.

“Basketball and football, in particular, have historic programs,” Underwood said. “They play in great venues, the Rose Bowl and the Coliseum. For basketball has been historic, you’re talking UCLA, maybe the all-time greatest program in college basketball. So, can do nothing but benefit the Big Ten.”
