IRVING, Texas — The Big 12 Conference Board has voted to extend membership invitations to four universities, effectively allowing them to join the conference.

The invited universities include:

  • Brigham Young University
  • University of Central Florida
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Houston

The Big 12 requires an affirmative vote of a supermajority of directors in order to extend membership invitations. All eight continuing members unanimously approved the measure.

Several institutional boards will hold conferences today to act on their Big 12 Conference membership.
