Texas A&M decision could determine future of storied series with Texas

DALLAS - The great Texas A&M conference debate has ignited the Aggies' fan base, spilled over into cyberspace and even has school legends debating the right path.

At stake: whether Texas A&M joins longtime rival Texas along with Texas Tech, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in the bulked up Pac-10 or pursues its own destiny in the Southeastern Conference.

Multiple sources familiar with the situation described a sharply divided board of regents and a potential razor-thin margin either way, with the SEC camp having the momentum. Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott, armed with invitations, will visit A&M officials on Sunday on a trip around Texas with stops at Texas and Texas Tech, a source familiar with the schedule confirmed.

Scott met Saturday with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Oklahoma has scheduled a board of regents meeting for Wednesday to consider conference membership.
