It's official: Texas and Oklahoma invited to join the SEC


Recommended Posts

As expected, the SEC has officially extended invitations for Texas and Oklahoma to join the conference. The news comes following a meeting with all 14 presidents, who all voted in favor of offering membership to the Longhorns and Sooners.

 

The only thing left for both schools to do is to accept the invitation. That will happen Friday during separate Board of Regents meetings the schools have scheduled. Things have moved quickly since the news leaked last Wednesday that Texas and Oklahoma had been discussing joining the SEC. On Monday, the presidents formally informed the Big 12 that they would not renew their grant-of-rights agreement after it expires in 2025.

The invitation for Texas and Oklahoma is to begin play in their new conference in 2025, but it is expected that both schools will attempt to make the move earlier, perhaps as soon as 2022.

Is there any timeline for this?

... Or is it wait and hope the B12 collapses first, and then pay the exit fee right before 2022 SEC schedules are due if not?

So much for aggy thinking they'd blow the thing up by leaking the story early . . . LOL
