Big 12 decides not to add UH to conference

The University of Houston will not be joining the Big 12, Tilman Fertitta told KPRC on Monday.

Big 12's university presidents and commissioner Bob Bowlsby met in Dallas to discuss the possibility of adding teams to the conference.

A news conference is still planned for 5:30 p.m. Monday with Bowlsby and Oklahoma President David Boren.

The Big 12 has been analyzing expansion options for the last three months.

Big 12 officials held interviews in September with 11 potential new members: Air Force, BYU, Central Florida, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Connecticut, Houston, Rice, South Florida, SMU and Tulane.

The Big 12 has been tossing around the idea of expansion for almost two years as it tries to find ways to increase revenue and improve the conference's chances to make the College Football Playoff.
