HOOVER, Ala. — Texas and Oklahoma are interested in joining the SEC.
That's the word on the street after Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle sent the internet on fire with his report about the two Big 12 teams reaching out the SEC about possible realignment.
Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork was in Hoover at SEC Media Days when the report came out, and was quick to set the record straight on A&M's stance.
“We want to be the only SEC program from the State of Texas," Bjork says. "There's a reason why Texas A&M left the Big 12. To be stand alone; to have our own identity."
Zwerneman's report came out 10 years to the day that then-Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin declared the Big 12 in a state of 'uncertainty.'
