In the midst of media events across the country, the college football landscape was shaken up by a monster rumor by Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle.

According to the article that cited unnamed sources, both Texas and Oklahoma have "reached out to the [SEC] about potentially joining." The article also mentions that the decision to add the Sooners and Longhorns to a potential 14-member SEC could come "within a couple of weeks."

Nine years ago, Texas A&M and Missouri left the Big 12 for the SEC. It was almost a decade ago since Colorado left for the Pac-12 along with Nebraska bolting for the Big Ten.

This is a move that could significantly hurt the Big 12 and open up a whole new can of worms on realignment. When you consider the lucrative TV deal that could be in place with the SEC, it makes a ton of sense.


The reaction afterward was insanity all over social media. In fact, schools involved already started giving statements to media members.

Can you imagine Texas regularly playing Alabama in college football? Or, imagine Oklahoma battling some of the SEC powers and trying to punch their ticket College Football Playoff in this competitive conference? Finally—imagine if these rumors are stumped by a jealous Texas A&M that doesn't want to share their space in the SEC with neighboring universities.

We will soon find out if these fantasies and rumors will become a reality.
