The headline says it all. Almost.
CBS Sports reports that if the Big Ten poaches Washington, Oregon, Stanford and California, effectively cutting the Pac 12 off at the knees, then the Big 12 intends to invite Utah, Colorado (welcome back, lol), Arizona and Arizona State to join the conference.
Of course, this doesn’t really matter for the Texas Longhorns, who, alongside the Oklahoma Soonerswill be heading to join the SEC, where they’ll push the conference’s schools to 16.
Per @CBSSports reporting: The Big 12 is preparing invites for the 4 corners schools should the B1G move on Cal, Stanford, Oregon, & Washington. New Big 12 would reach 16 members with the additions of UCF, Cincy, Houston, BYU, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, & Arizona State. pic.twitter.com/92m3ilpOGp
