Big 12 Positioning Itself To Be One Of 4 Superconferences

With Big 12 and SEC agreeing to a postseason bowl game between their league champions, the Big 12 has now positioned itself as one of the best four leagues in all of college football. Just imagine that it was not too long ago back in 2010 that the Big 12 was unstable and on the verge of collapse and swallowed up by the Pac-10.

Fast forward to now and the Big 12 is strong with 10 teams and now has now made itself one of the players in college football. With rumors of the Florida St. Seminoles could be joining the Big 12, there are rumblings once again that there could be four superconferences and the Big 12 is likely to be one of those:

"I really can't believe I'm saying this," one Big 12 school source said. "We might be moving to four superconferences -- and the Big 12 would be one of those."

It is hard to believe that the Big 12 is now among the four elite conferences, but with the recent mega television deal and rumors of teams wanting in on the Big 12 they have made significant strides in strengthening their league.
