The University of Texas and University of Oklahoma could begin petitioning the Southeastern Conference as soon as next week for membership.
According to WFAA in Dallas, the two schools will send a letter to the Big 12 Conference early next week stating neither school will renew their media contracts when they expire in 2025.
After such, the two schools will then petition for entry into the SEC for membership.
The move would turn the athletic conference into a 16-member super-conference, which includes Kentucky.
