Oklahoma And Texas A&M Received SEC Invites, OU President Says

This doesn't necessarily matter anymore but it's interesting nonetheless.

Oklahoma president David Boren said on Wednesday that both Oklahoma and Texas A&M received invites to the SEC, according to the Associated Press.

Boren says the Pac-10 offer was for five Big 12 schools — Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech — to join as a group. He says the SEC extended offers only to Oklahoma and Texas A&M, both of which opted to stay in a slimmed-down Big 12 after Colorado left for the Pac-10 and Nebraska left for the Big Ten.

A&M was definitely one of the schools rumored to have received an invite. The question with them was whether they would want to part from rival Texas.

Boren says that Oklahoma wasn't interested in the SEC because Oklahoma State and Texas weren't included.
