Reports: Texas and Oklahoma inquire about joining the SEC

HOOVER, Ala. (KMIZ)

Texas and Oklahoma have inquired about potentially joining the Southeastern Conference, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle on Wednesday.

The departure would leave the Big 12 with just eight teams, while the SEC would expand to 16. SEC commissioner Greg Sankey would not talk about the report when asked about it at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama. He only provided a, "no comment."

Conversely, Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher had a good laugh on the podium.

"Listen, we've got the greatest league in ball, so I mean that's the choices they make or what they do," he said. "I don't know. I don't know how i feel about it, I'm just worried about A&M, I'll control what I want to control here."

There is no official word from either school or conference. It would be a familiar situation, as on July 1st, 2012 both Mizzou and Texas A&M left the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference.
