Oklahoma State regents have scheduled a special meeting for Wednesday to "consider matters relating to athletic conference membership."

University president Burns Hargis says the Cowboys have "attractive options" and are working closely with Oklahoma to make sure the "best interests of both institutions" are achieved.

He says the regents want to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Officials at Oklahoma and Texas, two other Big 12 schools, are meeting later Monday to discuss conference alignment. Texas A&M has already said it plans to leave for the Southeastern Conference.
