The SEC continues to remain the most dominant conference in college football. They’re headlined by powerhouses such as Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and LSU. Now, it looks like the SEC could be adding new teams, for the first time since Texas A&M in 2012.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Texas and Oklahoma have reportedly reached out to the SEC about joining the conference. This was stated by a “high-ranking college official with knowledges of the situation.” This official announcement could come in the upcoming weeks.
SEC commissioner Greg Sankey has declined to comment about this possible addition of Texas and Oklahoma, but now, has some thoughts. According to Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, Sankey says “We are only worried about the 2021 season. Somebody dropped a report from unnamed people.”
14 teams would be in the SEC, if Oklahoma and Texas do join. This move would only add on to a highly-competitive conference, where two teams could possibly be in the College Football Playoff this season.
