Due to positive COVID-19 tests, Baylor’s game against Oklahoma State will now take place on December 12th.
The Big 12 title game is currently scheduled for the 12th, but this game means the Big 12 title game will almost assuredly be moved to the 19th.
I thought the better idea would have been moving Baylor-Oklahoma State to November 14th, and then Baylor-Texas Tech could have moved a week.
Here is the Big 12’s statement:
The Big 12 Conference announces the postponement of the Saturday, October 17, Oklahoma State at Baylor football game. Upon the recommendation of medical advisors, Baylor is suspending football operations temporarily after multiple positive COVID-19 test results. The game has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 12. The Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship remains tentatively scheduled for December 12 or 19 pending game results needed to determine the championship game participants.
And here is Baylor’s statement:
