Texas holding Tuesday meeting

Associated Press

AUSTIN, TexasUniversity of Texas regents will meet next week to decide whether the Longhorns will remain in the Big 12 or switch to another conference.

The regents announced Friday that they will hold a meeting by telephone Tuesday for “discussion and appropriate action regarding athletic conference membership.”

The future of the Big 12 is in jeopardy after Colorado agreed Thursday to jump to the Pac-10. The Pac-10 is also reportedly interested in inviting Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech to form a 16-team league.

Nebraska, meanwhile, is expected to announce Friday whether it will remain in the Big 12 or join another conference, likely the Big Ten.

The University of Colorado has officially joined the Pac-10.
The Board of Regents unanimously voted Friday to accept a bid to join the conference.
Regent Michael Carrigan said the vote was an easy one.
