What happens to the Big 12 if OU and Texas leave?

— Oklahoma and Texas will remain in the Big 12 Conference through the remainder of the league's current grant of rights before departing for the SEC in 2025, Big 12 commissioner Brett Yormark said Tuesday afternoon.

The Big 12 will be at 12 teams when the four newcomers arrive and Texas and Oklahoma leave for the SEC. That departure is set to happen in 2024 and the conference could end up playing the 2023 football season with 14 teams if the Longhorns and Sooners don't leave early.

As it stands now, Texas and Oklahoma are still set to leave the Big 12 for the SEC by 2025 at the latest.

Texas and Oklahoma are slated to leave the Big 12 and join the SEC in the coming years. Their departure might be arriving sooner than people expected.
