SEC associate commissioner Mark Womack said that the league has talked to the Big 12 about the prospect of a partnership that includes regular season football scheduling, reports Jon Solomon of AL.com.
Womack said that although the SEC has discussed the idea, the discussions haven't been "significant." He added that there were "a lot of issues" that would make scheduling a regular in-season series between teams difficult as the conference tries to ensure every team gets seven home games, as well as previously existing out-of-conference rivalry games.
Womack added that the league could add extra conference games, and that schedules in future would be planned out only four-to-six years at a time, as opposed to the 10-to-12 year plans they had made before college realignment became so rampant.
The Big 12 had been said to be looking at a partnership with the ACC last week, as well as two other then-unspecified leagues. It appears the SEC is one of those leagues. The Pac-12 and Big Ten had agreed on a similar deal in 2010, but that fell through as the Big Ten added additional teams.
