The potential addition of Oklahoma and Texas to the SEC will likely come down to a vote by the league’s member schools.

According to a report by the Houston Chronicle, the Sooners and the Longhorns have expressed interest in leaving the Big 12, with eyes on the SEC. However, according to multiple reports, Oklahoma and Texas will need voting approval from the SEC’s schools. At least 75 percent of the SEC’s 14 schools will reportedly need to be in favor of the addition of Oklahoma and Texas.

Two SEC schools are reportedly already against it.

According to Big 12 insider Kirk Bohls, Texas A&M and Missouri will be a “hard no” on the potential vote.

“I’m told Texas A&M and Missouri would be a hard no. Only 2 more needed to block an invitation to Texas, OU,” he reports.

It makes sense for those two schools to be against the addition of Oklahoma and Texas. After all, Texas A&M and Missouri left the Big 12 for the SEC years ago. The addition of the Sooners and the Longhorns could have a negative impact on the Aggies and the Tigers.

More schools will need to join Missouri and Texas A&M on the “no” side, though.

The next few weeks will be very interesting.
