BYU was a strong consideration when the B12 was formed, and the story went that Baylor got the spot. Since Colorado left the B12, maybe the attraction for BYU diminished. The B12 did converse with the AFA about joining. Still, CSU could be a bridge if BYU was still desirable. Of course, assessing the value of CSU would be necessary.
Since the B12 added WVU, maybe the focus is in that direction if they choose to re-consider more expansion. But the B12 passed on Louisville with WVU, and they don't show overt interest in Cincy though near everyone talking B12 expansion mentions them.
BYU had the 'no Sunday play' the first time they were under consideration. Maybe it is now more complicated with BYU's TV broadcasting contract along with BYU TV interests. Perhaps BYU's governance is even more less flexible now. I get the impression that the B12 and BYU have had serious, but quiet, discussions the last few years, but are unable to bridge certain differences.
It's unclear if a group of B12 schools are opposed to having BYU. I believe they have to resolve the financial, technical, and practical differences first. 'No Sunday play' can even be an issue for fb. BYU opposes even Sunday travel beginning with anything after 12:00am to get back to Provo. The B12 may view BYU's demands for accommodations on scheduling a bit too problematic.
