Texas and Oklahoma may leave the Big 12 early
Although Texas and Oklahoma are scheduled to leave the Big 12 conference in 2025, the delay in releasing the 2023 conference schedule is due to current negotiations by the two schools to leave for the SEC early. Although leaving early would result in approximately $100 million in exit fees, according to a CBS Sports report, it would benefit both parties. Texas and Oklahoma would get their move earlier and wouldn’t have to play any of the new Big 12 members. Meanwhile, the eight legacy Big 12 schools who agreed to dilute their share of the first two years of the new $380 million/year ESPN and Fox deal to help fund newcomers BYU, Cincinnati, UCF, and Houston, could be made whole through the Texas and Oklahoma exit fees.
