Every day there seems to be a new development on the college football scene with a team moving out of one conference to another, causing more instability and uncertainty in the sport.
Arizona is leaving the Pac-12 Conference for the Big 12. And now there are reports two more Pac-12 members, Oregon and Washington, will be heading to the Big 10.
If that comes to fruition, it means, among a myriad of consequences, two more partners for Ohio State and two news teams when mulling a wager on the Big 10 with Ohio sportsbooks.
Some universities have thrived amid the chaos.
With realignment once again shifting the landscape of college football, BetOhio.com – your source for Ohio sportsbook promos - utilized data from Sports-Reference.com to take a look back at the big winners following the last round of realignment taking place between 2011-2014.

Cincinnati a Success Story
The University of Cincinnati went to the American Athletic Conference (AAC) in 2013 and has become one of the great stories in the sport the past few years.
The Bearcats compiled an 86-41 record during that span with four Top 25 finishes, three AAC titles and two major bowl appearances. Last season, Cincinnati (9-4, 6-2) ended the year with a 24-7 loss to Louisville in the Fenway Bowl.
Cincinnati loved the move so much 10 years ago, they decided to do it again. Cincinnati has joined the Big 12 Conference as of July 1 and will begin the season under the coach who defeated them in the last game last year, Scott Satterfield.
Satterfield took over for Luke Fickell (2016-2022), who went onto the University of Wisconsin in the ever-changing Big 10.
You can find out more about where and how to bet the Bearcats, as well as the Reds and Bengals, on our Cincinnati sportsbooks.
