Texas and Oklahoma exploring options for joining the SEC

Two Big 12 powers are reportedly looking to jump ship and are eyeing the SEC as an alternative conference affiliation.

The Houston Chronicle first reported Wednesday that Texas and Oklahoma both reached out to the Southeastern Conference about joining the league.

The last time Texas was exploring free agency, it sparked a series of conference realignments amongst college sports.

Conference bylaws would require 12 members to vote in favor of extending an invitation to the two schools to join.

Officials from both schools chose not to comment on the rumors and SEC Commissioner Greg Sanky kept the focus on the 2021 season during media days this week.
