July 1 is moving day in college football. West Virginia and TCU will officially become members of the Big 12, while Missouri and Texas A&M make the jump to join the SEC. Those moves were the biggest in the latest round of realignment and the July 1 date can’t get here fast enough for some teams.
West Virginia took the Big East to court to leave the conference a year early, and the Mountaineers will be expected to be a Big 12 title contender in 2012.
Work is already underway for West Virginia’s switch in conferences, as the turf at Milan Puskar Stadium is getting a bit of a makeover.
