Report: Colorado Heads Back To The Big 12

According to reports, the University of Colorado is on their way back to back to the Big 12 conference.

The University Board of Trustees got together today and is supposed to meet again Thursday to

discuss the possibility of the move. The timing could not be better for the Buffs as the Big-12 is

scheduled a meeting for this evening and presumably expansion is on the agenda.

CBS Sports also wrote that Colorado is a priority expansion target as the school was a founding

member of the Big-12 in 1996 and was in the conference until it departed for the Pac-12 in 2011.

The Big-12 has already added four schools to the conference.

BYU. Houston, UCF, and Cincinnati will be joining the Big-12 this year. Texas and Oklahoma have already bolted for the SEC and will begin conference play on July 1, 2024.

The Pac-12 is falling apart as Colorado would be the third school to leave the conference. USC

and UCLA are taking the Los Angeles market to the Big 10 next season. They are losing market

share and sources say that they are having problems landing a new television contract.

Colorado enjoyed success in the Big 12 as they broke Folsom Field records and won the National Championship in 1990. This will be a good move for Buffs fans. Watch out for Colorado and Coach Prime as they play a much tougher schedule in the Big 12.
