Philadelphia, PA – As college football fans get set to watch 12 this fall, another round of conference realignment could soon follow.
Rumors continue to swirl that the Southeastern Conference is considering an expansion of up to four teams, led by Texas A&M. Numerous reports, including the Dallas Morning News, said the Aggies could announce a move from the Big 12 to the SEC as early as Monday.
ESPN on Saturday also reported that Florida State, Clemson and Missouri might be on the SEC's radar to form a potential 16-team super conference.
The talk of expansion in the SEC is nothing new, as there were reports in the summer of 2010 that Texas A&M was courted by the best college football conference in the country while Nebraska bolted for the Big Ten and Colorado left for what has become the Pac-12.
A&M reportedly decided to remain in the Big 12 when Texas also stayed, but the creation of the Longhorn Network may be the last straw for the Aggies.
