Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby will conduct video meetings with 17 teams that have contacted the Big 12 with hopes of joining the conference.

Lately a source said “it is becoming less likely” that the Big 12 will expand to 14 teams.

The Big 12 hopes to make a decision on expanding or staying at 10 teams by October when they hold a board of directors conference.

The list of teams being interviewed includes Air Force, Arkansas State, Boise State, BYU, Cincinnati, Colorado State, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, New Mexico, Northern Illinois, San Diego State, SMU, South Florida, Temple, Tulane, UCF, and UConn.
