Columbia, MO – The University of Missouri will reportedly be officially added as the SEC's 14th team, starting next year.
The Sporting News reported the announcement of Missouri's move from the Big 12 to the SEC will come early next week. The report said the Tigers will go into the SEC's East Division for football with Florida, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee and will join the conference after negotiating a buyout from the Big 12.
The Big 12 has witnessed its share of changes in the last year. Nebraska left for the Big Ten, while Colorado departed for the now Pac-12. Texas A&M is leaving and will move to the SEC starting next year.
