After two years of negotiations between the Big 12, SEC, Fox and ESPN, the news became official on Thursday evening. Texas and Oklahoma would be joining the Southeastern Conference in 2024.
The two schools were previously scheduled to stay in the Big 12 through 2024, so both will now be leaving a year early. The Big 12 welcomed 4 new members to the conference this year, meaning 12 teams will remain once the Longhorns and Sooners depart.
Shortly after the news was announced last night, a report surfaced that part of the agreement for Texas and OU to depart early included the Longhorns flipping their home game with Michigan from 2024 to 2027. Texas will now travel to Ann Arbor in 2024 in a game that will be broadcasted on Fox.
