The Pac-12 is in discussions about holding its football conference title game annually at the new Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

 

Commissioner Larry Scott confirmed to SI.com in a text message on Tuesday that the league is "discussing" moving away from its current format of having one of the participants host the game, as Arizona State did last December. If a change were made, it would go into effect this season, meaning the 2014 championship game scheduled for Dec. 5 would take place in the Bay Area.


Levi's Stadium is the new home of the San Francisco 49ers and would provide the Pac-12 with an ideal modern venue to give the game the feel of a big-time championship event.

 

Multiple sources indicated to SI.com that a permanent site for the Pac-12 championship has been a part of the discussions at the league's annual meetings taking place this week at the Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix. Other venues have been discussed over the years, but Levi's Stadium is considered the heavy favorite.
