Big 12 Officially Invites BYU, Cincy, Houston, & UCF

It’s officially official, the Big 12 is expanding. The eight remaining Big 12 members unanimously approved the invitations for BYU, Cincinnati, Houston, and Central Florida. All four members would join the conference in the summer of 2023.

Report: UCF, Cincinnati File Application to Join Big 12

The Athletic is reporting that University of Central Florida and the University of Cincinnati have officially filed for Big 12 membership. Both schools have requested addition to the conference for the summer of 2023 according to the report. UCF, Cincinnati, and the Big 12 have not commented publicly on the report.

The potential additions of the Knights and Bearcats would be the first shoe to drop in the Big 12’s quest to stay relevant in college football’s “Power 5” structure. As we reported earlier, the Big 12 is looking at raiding the AAC in order to replace the SEC-bound Texas and Oklahoma. The Big 12 is also looking at BYU to solidify the remaining slot in the conference.

Houston and BYU are expected to file their application later this week and the Big 12 members are expected to rubber stamp their addition by the end of the week or early next week.

According to ESPN and The Athletic, the Big 12 is looking to strike first and snag Central Florida, Houston, and Cincinnati from The American. The Big 12 is also considering extending an invite to BYU, the largest independent not named Notre Dame.

Quantity over quality.
