OU Board Of Regents To Discuss Conference Realignment Monday

NORMAN, Oklahoma – University of Oklahoma officials are scheduled to discuss conference realignment and OU's future affiliation on Monday.

The board of regents released an agenda for Monday's meeting, which included an item named "Conference Alignment."

The agenda states that the group will discuss the potential legal ramifications of realignment and will "consider new athletic conference membership."

It also stated that if necessary the board will "take any appropriate action."

Board members will at least discuss the issue of conference realignment but won't necessarily take any major actions or vote on the process.

OU president David Boren released a statement earlier this month saying that the university would make a decision on conference realignment within a three-week timeframe.

Texas A&M set the most recent round of conference realignment talk in motion with its expressed desire to join the SEC.

But their plans hit a snag when several Big 12 schools refused to waive their right to sue the SEC for accepting A&M as a new member.

OU and OSU were two schools who did waive their right to sue, potentially setting the stage for future realignment intentions from the two schools.

The two state schools have most often been associated with the Pac-12 conference in recent conference alignment talk.
