The Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series was a four-year series of college basketball games matching teams from the Big 12 Conference and the Pac-10 Conference. Started in 2007 and concluding in 2010, it was primarily a way to guarantee top flight competition for both conferences and garner more recognition for the level of play of both leagues in basketball. This series mirrored the ACC–Big Ten Challenge. There was a "designated" four-day window for the main part of the series matchups and a few other matchups in November and late December. Because there were more teams in the Big 12 at the time, two teams from the Pac-10 played twice against Big 12 teams.[1] The Pac-10 had a slight advantage on the national stage. UCLA (University of California Los Angeles) has 11 national championships, University of Arizona in 1997 & University of Oregon in 1939 The series originally had a 4-year contract which was not renewed by the conferences in 2010, bringing an end to the series.[2]
