A formal demolition of the last portion of Baylor's Floyd Casey Stadium has been postponed.

The demolition was scheduled for Thursday morning, once on scene media were told the event was not happening.

A spokesperson with the contracting company said the demolition has been moved to Saturday at 7 a.m.

Thursday's demolition was canceled because equipment used for the implosion was not up to preferred standards. A new detonator cord has been ordered and is expected to arrive on Friday.

Demolition of the more than 50-year-old stadium started in February.

More than 51,000 fans filled the stadium during its final Baylor game in December 2013, breaking the previous attendance record. 

The Bears defeated Texas, 30-10, winning the team's first Big 12 title and finishing the best season in the school's history, (11-1, 8-1 Big 12).
