SEC Sticks with 12 Members -- For Now

ATLANTA (AP) - The Southeastern Conference says it's sticking with its 12-school membership for now.

A statement from University of Florida President Bernie Machen, the chairman of the league's presidents and chancellors committee, outlined the findings of the group's meeting on Sunday in Atlanta.

"The SEC Presidents and Chancellors met today and reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment. We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league. We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion. No action was taken with respect to any institution including Texas A&M."

The Aggies are reportedly seeking to leave the Big 12. The Texas A&M System board of regents has a meeting slated for Monday that includes an agenda item about conference alignment.
