Big 12 announces it will stay at 10 members, won't expand

  The Big 12 conference will stay at 10 members, as announced in a press conference Monday evening.

The Big 12 conference announced Monday evening in a press conference that it would not expand its membership and will remain at 10 programs following a unanimous board decision.

“There were very, very strong series of commitments and comments made by every single member on our board – every single president representing our institutions of our very strong commitment to the Big 12 and to the strength and stability of this conference,” Board of Directors chair David Boren said in the press conference’s opening statement. “I have never heard, since I’ve been on the board, such strong commitments and such a unified sense of purpose.”

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby affirmed that there was no expansion vote ever taken and that it was an “exploratory process.”

“I think it was a public and transparent but highly respectful process, and it was intended to be that,” Bowlsby said.

The Big 12’s current members are Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, TCU, Texas Tech and West Virginia.
