MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

When League Presidents meet outside Dallas at the end of this month, they're expected to receive all the data from their research firm studying expansion, and could hear more personal pitches from schools, like the University of Memphis, looking for inclusion into the Power 5 Conference.

No vote on expansion is expected at that time, but one could come at the Big 12's Media Days later this Summer in July.

Oklahoma President David Boren said we'll know something at least by the end of the year.

However, there are several indications that it will happen sooner than later, so we may know who's in or who's out, or if they'll even be a Big 12 expansion before the start of the next college football season.

Stay tuned to WMC Action News 5 for the latest.
