West Virginia University was formally invited to join the Big 12 today. WVU, a member of the Big East conference for the last 16 years, will accept the Big 12's invitation.

 The Big 12 plans to remain at 10 schools with the addition of WVU, but still has Missouri as a member. Mizzou is expected to get a formal invite from the SEC sometime in the next few days.
