Big 12 Votes WVU to Replace Missouri?
The Big 12 has a replacement lined up for Missouri before it even leaves the conference.
The Big East, meanwhile, is in danger of losing another school before replacing the three that already have bailed on the league.
Acting quickly to make sure it maintains a 10-member lineup, the Big 12 approved bringing in West Virginia to replace Missouri when the Tigers complete their move to the Southeastern Conference, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Big 12 had not announced that the conference board of directors on Monday unanimously approved inviting West Virginia when Missouri’s spot comes open.
