SAN ANTONIO (AP)  Oklahoma State billionaire booster T. Boone Pickens says the Big 12 is in trouble if Missouri leaves.

Missouri has been rumored to possibly follow Texas A&M to the SEC. In San Antonio on Tuesday, Pickens said “we got a real problem” if Missouri doesn’t stay in the Big 12.

The oil magnate has given Oklahoma State’s football program hundreds of millions of dollars and kept vocal during the latest round of college realignment. Pickens also says TCU and Houston are the most sensible replacements for the Big 12.

The Aggies will begin playing in the SEC next year.

Five Big 12 teams are ranked in the Top 25  which Pickens says makes it unusual that the conference is “falling apart.”
