This left the Big 12, which only had ten teams in the conference before the move, with only eight. This wouldn't last for long as the conference would add Cincinnati, UCF, and Houston from the American conference, and later BYU who was previously independent.

 

The Sunbelt conference would add four more teams of their own with James Madison, Southern Miss, Rice, and Old Dominion all Joining by 2023. The Only Conferences that looked to remain untouched were the ACC and the Pac 12, but all that is about to change.
