The Big 12 already had two holes to eventually fill before the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners announced their intention to move to the SEC. Now, they have four.

At least in theory, or if they’re to actually have 12 members in a conference called the Big 12.

According to the The Athletic, it seems they’re actually looking to fill the conference. In particular, the Houston Cougars, BYU Cougars, the Cincinnati Bearcats, and the UCF Golden Knights are reportedly the front runners. (Better late than never, Bowlsby.)
