They have 3 options on the table. 

A full 12 game schedule.

A 10 game schedule with 9 conference games and 1 OOC game.

A 9 game conference only schedule.

If they stay with the 12 game option, the AAC, MAC, and Mountain West could fill lost games with the SEC and ACC.

BYU could actually have a schedule. 🙂

I think there is another option that is probably the most likely option for the Big 12. Play 10 conference games and you play a “rival” twice. So Texas/ OU, TCU/Baylor, Kansas/Kansas St., Texas Tech/ Iowa State, Oklahoma State/West Virginia. I don’t think the Big 12 wants to be the only conference that plays an OOC game.

Did the ACC change their minds? Because they are doing a 10+1 last I heard...

It depends. Now that the rivalry games have been taken away by the SEC, they may reconsider.

The Big 12 cancelled their virtual media days scheduled for this coming Monday. Instead, they are having their normally scheduled board meeting to discuss the current situation.

Dish also took off WCPO ABC out of Cincinnati.  My bill has not changed though.  A phone is coming.

Texas has to decide between keeping either the USF or UTEP game for its OOC game. The SEC cancelled the Texas/LSU game.

Wouldn’t surprise me to see Louisville try to add a Big 12 team.

My understanding is that if they have contracted OOC games on their schedules they can cancel excess games without violating the contract under an "Act of God" type clause, but cannot replace them with other opponents. 

If they already have OOC games on their schedule that have not been cancelled by other conference actions (SEC, Big 10, PAC12), cancelling an existing OOC game in favor of a replacement violates the "Act of God" provision of a contracted game. The Big 12 school would have to pay out at that point. I don't see that happening. Even Texas.

For example, Texas can either play USF or UTEP. If they play UTEP, they do not have to pay the buyout clause of the USF contract. If they decide to schedule Louisville and cancel both the USF and UTEP games, they will have to pay each school the contracted buyout. In USF's case, that about $2.5 million. I don't know what UTEP agreed to.

Everybody, get Texas to schedule you!!! I want my season ticket money back. 🙂
