BYU, Houston, UCF Ready for Power 5 Move to Big 12Top Stories
There was plenty of excitement, but certainly no surprise. Moving to a Power 5 Conference was years in the making for the BYU, Houston and UCF softball programs.
The future designation became official last Friday when the three schools were unanimously approved to join the Big 12 Conference (Cincinnati was also approved, but does not field a softball program).
BYU, a member of the West Coast Conference, will join the Big 12 for the 2023-2024 athletic season while UCF and Houston, members of the American Athletic Conference, will join no later than July 1, 2024.
