SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The University of Utah celebrated the 10th anniversary of the school’s first official day as a member of the Pac-12 Conference.

The Utes officially joined the Pac-12 on July 1, 2011.

Utah was invited to the conference on June 17, 2010.

On July 1, 2021, the university celebrated the anniversary with a social media posting that featured photos from the 10 years ago.

In 2011, Utah and Colorado became the Pac-12’s 11th and 12th full-time members.

Prior to the addition of the Utes and Buffaloes, the conference was known as the Pac-10 Conference. As its members changed, the Pac-12’s name changed. Previous names for the conference included Big Five, Big Six, Pac-8, and Pac-10.

In addition to the Utes’ anniversary, July 1, 2021 marked the start date for new conference commissioner George Kliavkoff.

After 12 years at the helm, Larry Scott’s tenure as Pac-12 commissioner ended and Kliavkoff’s began.
