Rank the AAC schools the BIG XII would want
Of: Houston, SMU, Tulane, and Tulsa rank them by how likely the Big XII would want them.

And also: would CSU, BYU or UNM be of interest?

In its current form? Zero for all of them. They could have taken any 2+ last year, got a big boost in revenue to to the pro-rata clause, given the new guys partial payouts, and made bank. But they didn't and now the pro-rata is no longer in place. No way they're paying any G5 school $35M+ each to join now.

If UT and OU leave? Houston would be the obvious backfill. BYU if they could stomach the Sunday rule. If not, then I'd say CSU.

Final 3 were BYU, Houston and Cincinnati (at least that is the general consensus belief).
Final 11 also included SMU, Tulane, CSU + Rice, Air Force, UCF, USF, UConn (that was pretty well documented).

Thanks for the serious replies! I'd prefer UCONN and the I-4 rivalry go to the ACC.

UCF and USF would be the best two adds. If only one Florida school, Memphis or Cincy from the AAC or Colorado St from the MWC.

To semi-seriously answer your question:
1. Houston
2. SMU
3. Any of the other American schools you didn't ask about
4. Tulsa
5. Virtually anyone else
6. Tulane

As for the others you ask about, it's tough to see any Big 12 interest in those three schools' athletic offerings save BYU football. The brands just aren't big enough to make that jump.

RE: Rank the AAC schools the BIG XII would want
If the Big 12 stays in the current configuration, then I think east is the way to go. West Virginia is so much on an island that they need neighbors,however, there are no close ones.

Here’s my take:
1. UCF - I’ve been a huge fan of UCF as an expansion team, even when they where in CUSA and USF was in the Big East. I think the perception is that they are willing to put more resources into athletics than USF. Also, Orlando is not a pro fb city, and I think that’s important.
2. Memphis/Cincy - I think 1 Florida team is enough, so then we need a bridge. Cincy could have made an argument in the past, but I think Memphis has improved greatly and have the higher ceiling. Also, Memphis not being a pro fb City like Orlando helps.
3. USF/Houston - I think a 2nd Florida school is more tempting than a 5th Texas team. Also, USF brings a new TV market to the conference that Houston does not. No matter how many Houston fans tell you, the Big 12 TV contract already includes the Houston area, and that won’t change as long as Texas is in the conference.

I think the others except for BYU are all long shots.
