Nearly a done deal? SEC expansion could be official in the coming days
The nation’s best conference could soon become a super conference as all indications are that both Texas and Oklahoma are indeed coming to the Southeastern Conference.
And just like that, the next round of college football realignment is upon us.
The latest news on the subject comes from Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman, who is reporting that expansion dialogue between Texas, Oklahoma and the SEC have been going on for months.
More importantly, the news could be made official in a week.
This report backs up Brent Zwerneman’s original report in the Houston Chronicle, as he was the one that first broke the news of Texas and Oklahoma were trying to get into the SEC.
Prominent Big 12 source tells the American-Statesman the Texas-OU move to the SEC is almost done. "They've been working on this for a minimum of 6 months, and the A&M leadership was left out of discussions and wasn't told about it." Move could become official in a week.

College football insider Brett McMurphy issued a similar statement on Friday morning:
“I had a source at Texas tell me they could notify the Big 12 as early as next week”
