Report: Oklahoma, Texas Could Be Joining The SEC

On Wednesday afternoon, a common college football realignment rumor popped back up on the rumor mill once more.

According to Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle, both Texas and Oklahoma reached out to the SEC. Both schools reportedly hoped to join the conference, per the report.

Texas and Oklahoma reportedly reached out to the SEC with one thing in mind. They were wondering if the stalwarts in the SEC were interested in forming a 16-team super league.

SEC college sports reporter Dennis Dodd asked SEC commissioner Greg Sankey about the possibility of Texas and Oklahoma joining the conference.

“No comment on that speculation,” he said this afternoon.

Meanwhile, Brian Davis of the Austin American Statesman reached out to sources at both Texas and Oklahoma. “High-level officials at both school have been evasive when asked by the Statesman,” he reported this afternoon.

However, one Oklahoma source did respond and asked, “is this groundhog day all over again?”

This is hardly the first time both Texas and Oklahoma have been mentioned in a possible realignment scenario.

Both would bring plenty of eyeballs – and plenty of money – to a new league if they decided to join. However, there are a lot of moving parts here, which is why nothing has happened just yet.

Will Texas and Oklahoma finally leave the Big 12 for a chance to create a super-conference?
