Now the Texas A&M has announced they will leave the Big XII by 2012, if they are accepted by another league, that would actually make that conference the Big IX.

Colorado left this year to become a member of the Pac-12, and Nebraska joined the Big Ten.

With nine teams, and with the possibility of losing another member, such as Missouri, the Big XII will be looking to expand.

Steven Lassan and Mitch Light, of Athlon Sports, takes a look at some potential candidates to join the  league.
