PROVO, Utah – BYU has officially received an invitation to the Big 12 Conference. A moment that BYU has been building and working towards for decades. Now it’s here.

The questions are endless now that the invitation is actually here. But one of the big ones for fans is going to be, how will BYU stack up with their fellow Big 12 colleagues? They rank quite well against the league foes, which shows BYU has been operating like a Power Five university and athletic department for a long time now.
