Board of Directors Confirms Big 12 Happy at 10

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Oklahoma State president Burns Hargis says the Big 12 is satisfied at 10 teams, though he acknowledged that if Notre Dame was interested in joining the league, “that’s something we would have to pursue.”

Hargis, who chairs the league’s board of directors, spoke Thursday during the Big 12’s annual meetings at the InterContinental Hotel in Kansas City.

He said that Big 12 administrators are all “very satisfied” with 10 teams, but nobody in the conference is willing to shut the door provided the right opportunity arises.

That could mean a school such as Florida State, which has expressed interest in the conference, or even Notre Dame, a traditional independent in football that might need to join a conference depending on how a college football playoff shakes out.
