The scheduled game between Baylor and Oklahoma State has been postponed due to the Big 12 Conference’s football game interruption guidelines and will now be played December 12 at McLane Stadium.

“We are disappointed to postpone another game,” said Baylor Director of Athletics Mack B. Rhoades. “However, the significant increase in positive COVID-19 cases has led to concerns of an outbreak and the decision to suspend team practice through October 17. Secondly, this has caused a position group to fall below the minimum threshold of available players."

"Though this is an unfortunate outcome, we remain determined to return to the field in the safest manner possible. Thank you to Commissioner Bowlsby and Oklahoma State AD Mike Holder for their cooperation in rescheduling this matchup.”

Kick time and television coverage for the rescheduled game will be released when available.

“In situations like this, it is best to do all that you can to break the chain of transmission to help mitigate the length of time for ongoing spread of the virus,” said Dr. Christopher J. Hostler, Co-Founder and Co-Owner of Infection Control Education for Major Sports (ICS). ICS serves as a consultant to the Big 12 in matters related to COVID-19.
