EDIT 1: Now TMG says there are nine candidates and Philly.com says one of the unnamed is Temple.
EDIT 2: Contradicting earlier reports, CBS 4 out of Denver and The Gazette of Colorado Springs say Colorado State is still in and Air Force is in as a football only possibility.
Originally reported by TMG Sports (behind paywall). Also Memphis Commercial Appeal and Yahoo Sports:
"Invitations have been sent to Cincinnati, Houston, Memphis, UConn, South
Florida and Central Florida from the American Athletic Conference, as
well as BYU and two other unnamed schools from the AAC.... Each finalist will make a presentation to Big 12 officials “presumably
in Dallas” in the next few weeks. After the presentations, the list will
be trimmed to two candidates and then Bowlsby will present the
candidates to the Big 12’s board of directors at a scheduled Oct. 17
meeting. At that point, the vote would move on whether to issue
invitations to the candidates."
