Earlier this week, ESPN chairman Jimmy Pitairo reiterated, once again, that the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners will remain in the Big 12 Conference until 2025.
It’s been a speculated date, as Group of Five conferences already have realignment underway after their hands were forced following the Texas and Oklahoma move last year.
The UCF Golden Knights, the Cincinnati Bearcats, the Houston Cougars and the BYU Cougars – the three former of whom are leaving the American Athletic Conference, while BYU is leaving its independent status behind – are set to join the Big 12 in 2023.
