A college football program that rose to power recently is still fighting for its chance to become a member of the Big 12.

In 2011, many analysts believed BYU was a perfect match for the Big 12.

However, the conference invited TCU and West Virginia to become members and left BYU out of the mix.

The Cougars became an independent school, a decision that has made it hard for the team to fill out its schedule.

According to ESPN, BYU is now trying to make its case to become part of the Big 12 yet again.

However, the Austin American-Statesman says the idea has little support among Big 12 officials.
