Houston athletic director Hunter Yuracheck recently met with Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott, the conference confirmed Monday.

The Cougars, currently a member of the American Athletic Conference, have been rumored to be looking to join a new league. The Houston Chronicle reports one of the topics Yurachek and Scott discussed was conference expansion. 

Houston has also been linked to potentially joining the Big 12. In June, Scott said the Pac-12 had “no desire to expand.”

The Cougars went 13–1 last season, winning their first conference championship. If Houston was to join the Pac-12, it would become the conference’s only school in Texas.
