It's official.

In a joint statement released by Oklahoma and Texas on Monday morning, both universities announced that they do not plan to renew their grant-of-rights agreement with the Big 12 after it expires in 2025.

Both schools have notified the Big 12 of their plans, according to the statement.

Both universities released the same statement.

"The University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas at Austin notified the Big 12 Athletic Conference today that they will not be renewing their grants of media rights following expiration in 2025," the statement read.
