When did the Big 12 break up? From the conference’s formation until the 2010–11 season, the Big 12 was split into two divisions for football. The Oklahoma and Texas schools formed the South Division, while the six northernmost schools formed the North Division.
Who is leaving the Big 12 Conference? Texas and Oklahoma are set to leave the Big 12 for the SEC no later than 2025. For now, the two programs might be playing in a 14-team conference rather than the usual 10-team conference of the past.
Why are Texas and Oklahoma leaving the Big 12? The news that both the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns would be leaving the Big 12 for the SEC was earth-shattering for two reasons: it made the SEC out as what would ruin college football for certain, and it made the future of the Big 12 painfully uncertain.
