University of Cincinnati to join Big 12 Conference

The Big 12 Conference made it official on Friday.

Two days after University of Cincinnati officials confirmed the school had officially submitted its application to join the Big 12, the conference's board of directors voted to extend a membership invitation to Cincinnati.

UC’s board of trustees unanimously granted president Neville Pinto the authority to remove the university from the American Athletic Conference and join the Big 12.

"We’re just really excited about where we are, our profile,” UC Director of Athletics John Cunningham said. “Being ranked the top 10 football program right now, all of our other sports, what we’re able to achieve. It is all kind of coming together, it’s a culmination of a lot of work and we can’t be more excited about where we are.”
