Despite report, OSU officials say they've had no contact with Pac-10

Popular celebrity tabloid website says it has a source at Oklahoma State saying the schools move to the Pac-10 is imminent. But OSU officials are saying they have not had any discussions with the Pac-10.

Oklahoma State officials are denying a report by popular tabloid website that says a move to the Pac-10 is a "done deal."

It's "just a matter of time" the source said to TMZ.

OSU officials, however, say they have had no discussions with the Pac-10 but have been told by University of Texas officials that OSU would be included in any potential movement.

OSU officials said they would not begin discussions until or if Nebraska publicly declares it's moving to the Big Ten.

“The report circulating about an immediate announcement today concerning Oklahoma State University and conference realignment is without merit," OSU director of communications Gary Shutt said in a statement. " There are no announcements planned by Oklahoma State University. We remain committed to the Big 12 Conference. If there are additional defections, we will have to evaluate our options.”

Both OSU and Oklahoma are expected to join Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech in a jump to the Pac-10.

Colorado has already made its move to the Pac-10 official.
