Can confirm report, via sources, by @SIPeteThamel that Oklahoma, Boren now negative on Big 12 expansion, a potential game - changer.
Source indicates at least six Big 12 schools now favor expansion as a concept and maybe as many as eight. No consensus on who just yet.
To repeat, if Oklahoma makes the CFP and Baylor beats Texas on Dec. 5, the Bears will represent the Big 12 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
Bob Simpson, a key Baylor donor who is close to Art Briles, on the possibility of a return: "We don't know yet. We'd like to see that."
Did a quick lookup. That Houston-OU 12.8 TV number in Houston bigger than any regular-season or New Year's Six CFB game last year in market.
