Conference Realignment: West Virginia Targeted By Big 12, According To Report

West Virginia is the latest school to get caught up in the conference realignment talk and according to the latest report the Mountaineers could be a Big 12 target.  Andy Katz of ESPN reports that West Virginia is the favorite over BYU on the conference's preference list if Missouri bolts to another conference, which looks likely at this point.

A source with direct knowledge of the Big 12's expansion plans told's Andy Katz Saturday that West Virginia holds a slight edge over BYU on the conference's preference list if the league loses Missouri. But the source was quick to say that it was a fluid situation and the order could change quickly.

Katz also reports that the Big 12 could shoot for a 10 team league for now while they weigh the pros and cons of a 10 team league versus a 12 team league.
