BREAKING: Baylor vs. Houston Has Been Postponed

He’s saying postponed, but this almost certainly means canceled.

Apparently COVID strikes again and will rob Baylor of a third planned opener, as Bruce Feldman is reporting that the Baylor-Houston game scheduled for tomorrow has been postponed. Given that this was only scheduled a week ago to fill the gap, and the teams have no real reason to try to play it later, it seems almost certain “postponed” means “canceled.”

As of this writing I’ve yet to see anyone else confirm the story, but Feldman is about as good at this as there is in the business, so if he’s saying it, it’s probably true.

I think I can speak for all of us when I say:

I’ll update with more information as it becomes available. It appears that our first game (if it even happens at this rate) will be next Saturday in Waco against Kansas.

UPDATE: Dennis Dodd has confirmed the postponement and indicated that the COVID issue is on the Baylor side.

Colt Barber is implying that it isn’t the result of positive tests but contact tracing, instead.

UPDATE 2: Baylor has confirmed that the game is postponed and it was because of issues on our side, so it is official now.
