MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - In a shocking announcement today, it was revealed that Texas and Oklahoma have reportedly reached out to the SEC about possibly joining the conference.

The story was first reported by the Houston Chronicle as they announced that the two Big-12 teams individually reached out to the Conference.

An announcement could arrive in just a couple of weeks and if the Longhorns and OU join the SEC, the Conference would have 16 schools.

Texas A&M famously exited the Big-12 nine years ago to go to the SEC, but now it seems like two others are about to join.

Longhorn football finished 4th in the Big-12 last season with a 7-3 record, while the Sooners placed 2nd with a 9-2 record.
