TCU and the University of Oklahoma have a non-conference game scheduled for next season. OU would have to find a new non-conference opponent if TCU joins the Big 12.
Earlier Thursday, Big 12 leaders agreed to share Tier 1 and Tier 2 broadcast revenues for six years and Texas agreed not to show high school sports clips on its Longhorn Network.
Thursday’s news came just two days after questions about Missouri’s commitment to the Big 12 came into question. On Tuesday, the Missouri Board of Curators voted to give chancellor Brady Deaton the “authority to take any and all action necessary to fully explore options to conference affiliation" for Missouri and its university system.
Several Big 12 officials, including University of Oklahoma president David Boren, have said it’s 50-50 on whether or not Missouri will remain in the Big 12.
