Big 12 eyeing BYU, Cincinnati, Houston and UCF for possible expansion

Sep 3, 2021

It appears as though the Big 12's expansion plans are coming into focus following the sudden departures of Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC this summer. The Big 12's preference is to expand by four teams with a specific focus on BYU, Cincinnati, Houston and UCF, according to The Athletic's Max Olson. Invitations to the four schools could come as early as this month, and they may be able to join the league before the scheduled departures of Texas and Oklahoma in 2025, according to Action Network's Brett McMurphy.
