The Texas A&M System board of regents has called a special meeting Monday that includes an agenda item about
conference alignment. The session comes amid speculation that Texas A&M is leaving the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference.

The item, which is part of the executive session agenda, is
called: "Authorization for the President to Take All Actions
Relating to Texas A&M University's Athletic Conference Alignment,
The Texas A&M University System."

Texas A&M considered switching to the SEC last year before
staying in the Big 12. The university has not confirmed it is again
discussing a jump to the SEC, but talk has been intensifying that
the Aggies are looking to leave.

The news of this meeting comes on the heels of the Texas House
Committee on Higher Education calling a Tuesday hearing, to which
Big 12, SEC and Texas A&M officials have been invited, to discuss
possible realignment of college conferences in the state.
