Report: Texas A&M to the SEC; Florida State, Clemson, Missouri to Follow?

This morning, ESPN is reporting that Texas A&M to the SEC is a done deal, with the network citing a high-ranking source at the school.

ESPN is leading its ESPNews newscasts with the story.

The report claimed that Missouri would also leave the Big 12 with A&M to join the SEC and that Florida State and Clemson would leave the ACC to join the SEC.

However, The Sporting News is saying part of the story might not be correct. TSN wrote that an SEC source said the conference would expand to no more than 14 teams. It currently has 12 schools; adding Texas A&M, Missouri, Clemson and FSU would bring the SEC to 16 schools.

According to The Sporting News, "Florida State’s inclusion would be news to ACC commissioner John  Swofford, who said in a statement that he’s not aware of any of his member schools that are thinking about leaving. 'We'll continue to be mindful of the collegiate landscape and what's best  for the ACC and its member institutions,' Swofford said. 'With that said, I've  received no indication from any of our 12 presidents that they have any  intention of being affiliated with any conference other than the ACC.'"

If it happens, it would be another seismic shift in college football and certainly create a ripple effect, as the Big Ten—which just added Nebraska as its 12th team this season—would likely respond.

A&M's departure could also mean the demise of the Big 12.
