With College Football Playoff expansion on the horizon and the sport as a whole undergoing radical change, another round of conference realignment may be on the horizon. Texas and Oklahoma have reportedly "reached out" to the SEC about joining the league should the two Big 12 powerhouses choose to leave their home conference, according to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle.

Citing "a high-ranking college official with knowledge of the situation," the Chronicle reports that the SEC could announce the additions of the Longhorns and Sooners "within a couple of weeks."

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey would not address the report while in attendance at 2021 SEC Media Days on Wednesday.

"No comment on that speculation," he told CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd. Sankey later added: "We are only worried about the 2021 season. Somebody dropped a report from unnamed people."

they would be a strong addition for any conference.  Overall sports, large national fan base, big revenue and academic reputation are all solid 

Would be a hell of a football league.

There goes OU's annual (practically) CFP berth! 🤣  Might wanna reconsider!  

Idk Oklahoma has had the SEC's number when it mattered most... outside of Georgia. One thing I give the big 12 flack for is no defense.... 

But OU offense has always been Potent like Rattlesnake venom. 

Outside of Georgia and Alabama there's no other high powered Offense that you can even compare to Oklahoma in the SEC.  As of now anyway.... 

I think Oklahoma in the SEC would throw a screw into some of yalls line of thinking.... 

And Texas with their money would eventually catch up....

If this happens though the Big 12 is done.... 

Which I don't think too many people would complain about anyway.... 

But the problem would be where would these teams go? 

ISU,KSU and Kansas could probably join the Big 10. 

OKST,TTU,Baylor and TCU-Pac-12?-This would make the Big 10 and Pac12 super killer basketball conferences

Usually in conference expansion when there's smoke there's fire.

This is going to happen.

I expect the other Big 12 members to start fleeing ASAP.

West Virginia joins the ACC and Notre Dame football finally commits giving them 16 as well.

The Big 10 swipes two more (Iowa State and Kansas?).

Well if that happens with the upcoming playoff expansion it will ironically help the group of 5s as remember the playoff change on consideration was top 6 conference champions and 6 at large 

 

If big 12 falls apart it would leave 4 "power conferences" and 2 more at large conference bids which would likely go to one of group of 5 teams instead of big 12

ISU,KST and Kansas going to the Big 10 could happen. 

I'd also say WVU would consider Big 10 or ACC... 

Geographically Big 10 and ACC would be reasonable options. Don't know why WVU joined the Big 12 anyway...

West Virginia would almost certainly join the ACC.

Obviously, they joined the Big 12 because it was a P5 conference and gave them a bigger payout than the old Big East.
