What would Big 12 expansion mean for AAC, C-USA, Southern Miss?

The Big 12 appears set to expand following Tuesday’s news that commissioner Bob Bowlsby has been told to evaluate the conference’s expansion options. Cincinnati, Houston, UCF, Memphis, UConn and South Florida appear to be viable expansion options out of the AAC. Southern Miss and Old Dominion could move up out of Conference USA if the AAC needs to bolster its membership.
