Update: Big 12 presidents decide: no new teams for conference

GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) — The Big 12 Conference has decided against expansion from its current 10 members.

The announcement came after a six-hour meeting Monday with the conference’s university presidents and Commissioner Bob Bowlsby.

The Big 12 has been analyzing expansion options for the last three months, but it never made a commitment to expand.

Conference officials held interviews in September with Air Force and Colorado State from the Mountain West; Central Florida, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Houston, South Florida, SMU and Tulane from the American Athletic Conference; and BYU, which is a football independent with its other sports in the West Coast Conference.
