Big 12 to Extend Formal Invite to West Virginia

Multiple broadcast outlets, including CBS Sports, report that the Big 12 Conference will extend a formal invitation to West Virginia to join the Big 12 Conference.

The Mountaineers informed the Big East Friday morning that they were leaving the league. The Big 12 is expected to officially announce the invitation later today.

The Big 12′s board of directors voted Friday morning and chose West Virginia over Louisville. The Big 12 will stay at 10 schools, a source said.

Missouri is expected to formally leave the Big 12 for the SEC in the near future and West Virginia will replace Mizzou in the Big 12.

West Virginia will have to give 27 months notice to leave the Big East Conference and they won’t be able to join the Big 12 until the 2014 football season.

While the Big East is losing TCU, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Syracuse, they are currently in the process of adding multiple schools for football, including Houston and the University of Central Florida.
