FOX Sports analyst Dave Wannstedt says several Big 12 teams on the verge of finding new conferences
FOX Sports college football analyst and former Pitt Panthers head coach Dave Wannstedt dropped a bomb ahead of the big announcement on Tuesday afternoon that the ACC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 plan to form an alliance, leaving the Big 12 conference out of the mix.
Wannstedt said on 670 the Score that several Big 12 schools are already making plans to join other conferences in the future. He said Oklahoma State and Kansas State will join the Pac-12, West Virginia will join the ACC and Kansas and Iowa State will join the Big Ten.
None of the schools or conferences have confirmed or denied these rumors yet. Also, Wannstedt failed to mention what will happen to schools like Baylor and Texas Tech. There have been rumors that, since Oklahoma and Texas announced a few weeks ago that they will be joining the SEC in 2025 (if not sooner), the Big 12 has been looking for their replacements.
But if Wannstedt is right, there may not be a Big 12 conference in the future.
