Pac-10 to tempt TTU away from the Big 12, says Rivals

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - We might see the last of the Big 12 soon. 

Online reports including a site called rivals.com say the Pac-10 will invite Texas Tech and other schools to dump the Big 12 and move west, so to speak. 

According to Rivals, the all new Pac-10 might include Texas Tech, Colorado, Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.  Why would Tech even think about such a move?  It comes down to money. 

Some estimate that Texas Tech would go from $8 million to between $12 and $20 million in TV revenue. However, Texas Tech Athletic Director Gerald Myers is quoted by lubbockonline as saying "My position right now is that we're committed to the Big 12."
