SAN FRANCISCO — The Pac-12 Conference announced Tuesday the approval to extend invitations to UC Davis and San Diego State to join Pac-12 women’s lacrosse as affiliate members, beginning no later than the 2023-24 season. The decision was recommended by the Pac-12 Council and approved by the Pac-12 Board of Directors at its most recent board meeting.

“We are excited to have UC Davis and San Diego State join Pac-12 women’s lacrosse as affiliate members,” Pac-12 Deputy Commissioner Teresa Gould said. “Women’s lacrosse continues to be a rapidly growing sport nationally, and we hope that the addition of two additional programs in the Pac-12 helps support continued growth on the West Coast. UC Davis and San Diego State are a great fit for our conference, and we look forward to expanding to eight teams beginning no later than the 2023-24 season.”

Determinations as to scheduling format, Pac-12 tournament bracket methodology and additional conference policies impacted by the addition of UC Davis and San Diego State remain to be discussed and will be made in due course.

Last season, UC Davis finished 5-8 and played games against Pac-12 members Cal (twice), Colorado, Oregon, Stanford and USC.

San Diego State finished 7-8 with games against Pac-12 members Arizona State, Cal, Oregon and USC.
