NORMAN – The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department announced Thursday that upon the university’s move to the Southeastern Conference on July 1, 2024, OU’s wrestling program will remain in the Big 12 Conference as an affiliate member.

The announcement followed a vote by the Big 12 Conference’s governance group, which consists of university presidents and athletics directors.

The seven-time national champion Sooner wrestling program has won 24 conference championships, including three in the Big 12 era (1996-present). Oklahoma has produced 35 individual Big 12 champions in addition to its 64 All-Americans and eight individual national champions since the league was established.
