Texas Tech President, Lawrence Schovanec and Tech Athletic Director, Kirby Hocutt discuss the joint effort between the current Big 12 teams to bring in four new colleges to the Big 12 conference on Sept. 10, 2021.

The Big 12 has announced on its Twitter new additions to the conference starting next summer. 

The University of Houston, University of Central Florida and Cincinnati will join the other 10 schools. Brigham Young University has already announced its plans to join during the 2023-2024 year. 

The Big 12 is currently in search of its new Big 12 commissioner after Bob Bowlsby announced his retirement back in April. 

Texas and the University of Oklahoma are still under contract to compete until its expiration in 2024-2025.
