Could the Big 12 Expand Past 12? A Big 12 Athletic Director Thinks it Could



Even with BYU, Cincinnati, Houston and UCF all on their way to the Big 12 in the coming seasons, could the Big 12 still be considering expansion?

According to Texas Tech athletic director, and Big 12 expansion subcommittee member, Kirby Hocutt, the four current expansion members are right… for right now. But more could potentially be coming in the future.

With a true 12 team Big 12 of Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Texas Tech, Iowa State, TCU and West Virginia, plus the foursome mentioned above, the Big 12 won’t be on the level of the Texas and Oklahoma, but the parity will never have been better.

And it appears, the expansion could be continued with 14 or 16 teams, depending upon how many additional teams may be considered for the conference.

From the AAC, USF or Memphis could be considered, or teams from out west in the smaller West Coast conferences could be considered. It’s clear that, even though four for-sure teams will be arriving in the Big 12, more could be on the way.
