Missouri's athletic director said Oklahoma's interest in switching conferences only reinforces the notion of instability in the Big 12.

Mike Alden said Saturday that Missouri remains focused on
keeping the conference intact while continuing to strengthen the
school's profile. Though Missouri is more concerned than a few days
ago, he said the school will do well whatever happens.

Oklahoma president David Boren said Friday that the Sooners
expect to decide whether to leave in three weeks. He said he flew
to Missouri to confer with chancellor Brady Deaton, the chairman of
the Big 12 board of directors, and to College Station, Texas, to
try to prevent Texas A&M from leaving for the SEC.

Alden spoke before No. 21 Missouri's opener against Miami of
Ohio.
