4. Oklahoma State
Pac-12 Expansion Fit: If the Pac-12 really does get into the expansion discussion, it’ll be fascinating to see just how it sees Oklahoma State as a stand-alone possibility.
Whether or not the Pac-12 could get Oklahoma, too, that’s not a bad media and time zone area to make a footprint if it just took the school in Stillwater.
The teams in the major sports are more than good enough to raise the conference’s competitive profile, and as much as the school might like the rivalry with Oklahoma and Texas, the idea of breaking free might not be as unappealing as it seems.
But like Texas Tech, Oklahoma State almost certainly listens if the other big schools are getting pitched.
