SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Pac-12 Conference has notified the NCAA of its proposal to provide more benefits to athletes under the new governance model for the five major conferences.

The Pac-12's announcement Wednesday comes on the first day the NCAA established for the power conferences to offer suggestions. The league's university presidents and chancellors first proposed their ideas in a letter to colleagues across the country in May.

The proposals include a stipend to cover the full cost of attendance, increasing medical support and reviewing the time demands for athletes.

The Pac-12 says its presidents and chancellors will explore how to implement the proposed reforms at its board meeting Oct. 27, including by each institution, conference-wide action or among the five major conferences.

Any rule changes that occur would not start until the 2015-2016 academic year.
