Oklahoma's board of regents has posted the agenda for Monday's meeting. It's a single paragraph that says the board will consider switching conference affiliation, and any legal ramifications of such a move.

The agenda says the regents may discuss the topic behind closed doors and "take any appropriate action."

University president David Boren said earlier this month that Oklahoma had been in contact with multiple conferences and expected a decision within a three-week timeframe that would run out next week.

The Big 12 lost Nebraska (Big Ten) and Colorado (Pac-12) in July, leaving it with 10 members, and Texas A&M is on the verge of joining the SEC.
