Arkansas not interested
in making Big 12 move
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long says the school has “no interest” in joining another conference amid speculation the Razorbacks could be a candidate to move to the Big 12.
Long said Wednesday that Arkansas is happy with its current stature within the Southeastern Conference.
The Big 12 recently lost Nebraska to the Big Ten and Colorado to the Pac-10, leaving it with 10 members.
Arkansas left the Southwest Conference and joined the SEC in 1991.
Some of its old rivals from the Southwest Conference — such as Texas and Texas A&M — now play in the Big 12.
