The Big 12 will be welcoming four newcomers to the league this season in BYU, Cincinnati, Houston, and UCF. Oklahoma and Texas, who have been seen as the conference’s “major” brands, will be exiting the conference following the conclusion of the 2023-24 athletics year.
According to Steward Mandel and Max Olsen of The Athletic, it now appears that the Big 12 will be looking to expand even further following the departure of the Sooners and the Longhorns.
In an article by the pair of writers, it is reported that the conference has been in contact with Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and Utah, giving the schools optimism that they may eventually become members. This would bring the conference to a total of 16 teams should they strike a deal.
