Texas A&M SEC Expansion: Aggies Officially In, the 3 Best Options to Join Them
With Texas A&M officially joining the SEC starting next year, the next big question is who the 14th team will be. Here are three of the best options
There is no better school for the SEC than Virginia Tech. The football is the best available and the Hokies just got a new basketball practice facility. They would also bring in the Washington D.C. market.
But any move is unlikely. The Hokies have repeatedly denied wanting to leave the ACC and the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse to the ACC as well as a $20 million buyout fee will likely keep it that way.
The conference reportedly offered the Tigers a spot in the conference but that statement was quickly taken back. If there is not a withstanding offer, the SEC should make one.
Missouri may not be the home run fans are hoping for but the Tigers are the most viable 14th team given their geography and the ACC’s expansion and increase in buyout fees for the ACC.
Yes, the Mountaineers just lost by 26 to LSU at home and were reportedly denied admission to the conference but they would still be a solid addition to the conference. West Virginia brings in a solid football team, a better basketball team and a fan base as passionate as any in the country.
In terms of TV markets, this does not do much but is one of the best options for on-field performance.
