Big 12 preparing to accept West Virginia

10/25/2011

The Big 12 has informed West Virginia it will be accepted into the conference once there is formal approval, which could come as soon as Tuesday, a source within the conference told ESPN's Joe Schad.

West Virginia will be accepted into the conference as a replacement for Missouri, which the conference believes is departing for the SEC. The only thing holding up Missouri's departure is legal concerns, the source said.
