COLLEGE STATION, Texas — A Texas lawmaker has indefinitely postponed a Tuesday hearing on Texas A&M potentially leaving the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference.
The announcement came on Monday while the Texas A&M Board of Regents was meeting behind closed doors to discuss conference alignment.
The chairman of the Texas House Committee on Higher Education, state Rep. Dan Branch, says "there is no immediate need to evaluate the merits of an athletic conference reconfiguration involving Texas A&M" and other Texas schools.
The move comes one day after the SEC reaffirmed its 12-school alignment amid reports that the Aggies were leaving.
