I think those rivalries will heavily influence the decisions.


I think in the end the pressure will be great to go where the regional rivalries of Texas and of Oklahoma exist. The fans want to play those rivalry games. Oklahoma will have somewhat of a choice. The Nebraska rivalry is in the Big Ten. They'll want to keep rivalries with Oklahoma State and Texas.

For Texas I think the Texas A&M one will be a big driver in the end. Arkansas is also in the SEC, which is a historic rival. If Oklahoma goes SEC, there will be tremendous pressure on Texas to go SEC too. Many in the ACC want to see Texas here. But I find it hard to believe they would ditch all of their historic rivals to come to a place where they have none. I only see it happening if Texas brings half the Big XII with them to the ACC, and we go to 20 members with ND.
