AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The University of Texas regents will meet next week to discuss the future of the Big 12 Conference.

The regents on Monday will discuss "appropriate action regarding ... athletic conference membership."

The meeting will come on the same day that University of Oklahoma regents are meeting on the topic of conference affiliation. Oklahoma has indicated it is deciding whether to leave the Big 12 after being approached by multiple conferences.

Texas officials flew to Oklahoma last weekend to try to convince Oklahoma to stay. Texas A&M has announced its intention to join the Southeastern Conference.

The Big 12 lost Nebraska (Big Ten) and Colorado (Pac-12) over the summer.
