The 17 schools that will make their presentations to the Big 12 include Cincinnati, Houston, BYU, South Florida, UCF, UConn, Memphis, Colorado State, Boise State, Tulane, Temple, East Carolina, SMU and New Mexico, sources said.
My gut tells me two will be BYU and Houston, thanks to the latter’s politicking. The article also mentions that Big 12 expansion to 14 is ‘unlikely’ which is great news for CUSA. If the AAC were to lose just one team from its stable, they may stay pat. And even if they did poach a CUSA member — like a Rice or Marshall — CUSA would likely not feel the need to grab yet another Sun Belt squad.
