The Big 12 board of directors is hoping Missouri stays in the conference. Last Friday, the Board of Curators gave MU Chancellor Brady Deaton the power to make decisions regarding conference alignment. Mizzou is considering a move to the SEC. The Chancellor says a lot of work is being done behind the scenes regarding the decision. He says he has had meetings every day on the issue.

Monday’s Big 12 meeting included all 10 current members along with Texas Christian University, which will join next season. The board reportedly discussed television rights during the meeting.
