Big 12 Holds Video Conference with Oklahoma and Texas



After a wild week that included skipping a league call with the Big 12, Oklahoma and Texas finally have met with the conference executive board.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, according to WVU columnist Bob Hertzel, said the meeting won’t be the last after cordial talks with both schools. According to multiple reports though, Oklahoma and Texas are expected to announce their intentions to leave the conference for the Big 12 as early as Monday.

The Big 12 executive committee of Bowlsby, Texas Tech president Lawrence Schovanec and Baylor president Linda Livingstone met with Oklahoma president Jeff Harroz and Texas president Jay Hartzell, and if the Big 12 statement is indicative of their hopes, the conference hopes to retain both schools.

In the statement, Bowlsby said the committee would look into ways to strengthen the conference and be mutually beneficial to both Oklahoma and Texas, along with all other member schools.

Monday figures to be a big day for the Big 12 in determining what route Oklahoma and Texas will take and the steps the Big 12 will take in reaction to those decisions.
