Texas A&M Expected To Join SEC, Announcement Expected Monday, According To Report

Rumors of a possible SEC expansion have been flying all week, and now, it looks like they are legitimate. Texas A&M is indeed expected to announce that it is leaving the Big 12 to join the SEC, according to a report by Brett Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle. The school has reportedly called a 3 p.m. meeting for Monday, and shortly thereafter, they are expected to make the announcement.

The school's decision-makers are expected to vote on Monday to give the school president the right to decide, which essentially means it is only a matter of time until it becomes official. Texas A&M's expected move will give the league 13 teams, and speculation is flying that the league will look to invite other teams to get back to an even number.

Nothing appears to be official yet, but with the school calling the meeting and the SEC expected to meet to hold up their end of the bargain over the weekend, it appears to be only a matter of time.
