A new era in the Big 12 Conference starts July 2023, the league announced earlier today.
In other words, the BYU Cougars will shed their independent status, and the UCF Golden Knights, the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Houston Cougars will leave the American Athletic Conference, for the Big 12. It remains unclear what the next move will be on the part of the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners, who intend to join the SEC as late as 2025.
Cincinnati, Houston and UCF have reached agreement on a deal to exit the AAC and join the Big 12 in the summer of 2023, sources tell @TheAthletic. Announcements coming soon.— Max Olson (@max_olson) June 10, 2022
