Losing two powerhouse programs like Texas and Oklahoma would of course be devastating for the Big 12 Conference.

This situation is very fluid and a lot can change, but stayed tuned because it’s very possible that the Big 12 might lose its two most high profile programs very soon!
Talking to sources right now about Texas and OU possibly headed to the SEC.
There's definite fire, not smoke.
