Report: Texas A&M to the SEC, More Reports Coming in
ESPN reported this morning that Texas A&M will bolt the Big 12 and move to the SEC beginning in 2012. The network cited a high-ranking official at the school.
Now the San Antonio News-Express is reporting the same thing, though hedging on whether the Aggies can actually start in the SEC as early as next year.
According to the paper, "Texas A&M intends to bolt the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference, multiple insiders said Friday, abruptly ending its nearly century-old league affiliation with rival Texas and 15-year union with the Big 12, which includes longtime in-state rivals Baylor and Texas Tech. A&M has called a telephonic regents meeting for 3 p.m. Monday to discuss "conference alignment." Agenda item 15 reads in part, "Authorization for the President to Take All Actions Relating to Texas A&M University's Athletic Conference Alignment."'
An A&M official told the paper that the Aggies hope to begin play in the SEC in 2012, but it's too early in the complex process to determine if that will happen.
