How about this? Add 2 more games for a regular season of 14 games (9 conference and 5 out-of-conference). And I mean this in an in-general standpoint. Look at the Pac-12; the only conference with 12 schools (compared to the Big TEN with 14 schools) to have their members with 9 conference games and 3 out-of-conference games. While the rest of the conferences (except the Big XII) stick with 8 conference games and 4 out-of-conference games.

In any case, with 2 more OOC games, it would at least bring a potential money game; just exclude booking against an FCS team and all is good to go; either 3 P5 & 2 G5 or 2 P5 or 3 G5. Look how would the scenarios be:

In a 14-team conference (9 conference games), one team would face:

a.) all 6 of its division foes once yearly (home-and-home series alter per 2 years)
b.) 1 cross-division non-division foe yearly (home-and-home series alter per 2 years)
c.) 2 rotational non-division foe with any pair of the 6 non-division teams (home-and-home series alter per 2 years; in a 6-year span)

In a 12-team conference (9 conference games), one team would face:

a.) all 5 of its division foes once yearly (home-and-home series alter per 2 years)
b.) 2 cross-division non-division foes yearly (home-and-home series alter per 2 years)
c.) 2 rotational non-division foe with any pair of the 4 non-division teams (home-and-home series alter per 2 years; in a 4-year span)

In a 10-team conference (9 conference games), one team would face:

a.) all 9 of its division foes once yearly (home-and-home series alter per 2 years), a.k.a. full round-robin schedule

I think if there is a expansion of the season I would think adding games on the back end (playoffs) would be more favorable to everyone. I think the expansion of the regular season would be to hard to be agreed to. Though conferences may favor a playoff expansion to 8 or 12 team. This would probably increase the payout to each conference.
The 8 team conference gives the P-5 a auto bid to the playoffs and 3 spots open to everyone. Should the Big 12 self destruct then move up the best remaining conference to a auto bid.
A 12 team tournament could give the top 8 conference champs a auto bid and 4 open spots. The top 4 conference champs get a first rout bye. The remaining conference champs host the first round games.

Finally, a smart move by a conference with 10 teams since the de-regulation rule came into effect within the NCAA. That should be something that the Big XII should had thought of doing so too, but chose not to since that conference was the one that brought up the de-regulation rule to begin with.

Anyways, with 2 5-team divisions, not only it would symbolically represent geographically, but also everyone would still play with everyone for 9 conference-play games and 3 non-conference games.

Also, if they do expand in the future,
or have to replace, those east-west
divisions will be a primary factor in
determining which school(s) to add.

The big 12 went to 9 conference games after going down to ten teams in order to have sufficient inventory for the network contracts

That, I can understand that. But still, the Big XII can still have time to decide to make 2 divisions of 5 teams each while keeping their round-robin conference-play schedule format without so much fuss, now that they got their wish of sponsoring a conference championship game, thanks to the deregulation rule; without worrying about wanting to expand back to 12 member team schools.

Look at the SWAC, which has been having 10 member schools since the 1999-2000 academic year, with a CCG (for a FCS league; cuz its champion is not eligible to the FCS playoffs just like the MEAC) and 9 conference games (round-robin style). At least the Sun Belt had enough guts to try out that effort in case they don't choose to expand upto 12 members schools (with Idaho and New Mexico St. leaving after the 2017 fall season).

In the end, the Big XII could still make money & markets & network contracts with 10 schools, even if they might add division play. Just simply split the Oklahoma schools by putting which one of them in the North and which one of them in the South. Assuming that Oklahoma will be in the North, and Oklahoma St. in the South; meaning that in a conference championship game, let's say Oklahoma (N) and Texas (S) are the respective division champs that might meet up again in a rematch with the Big XII football title on the line.
