Oklahoma State vs. Baylor rescheduled for December 12th

A game that likely has Big XII Championship Game implications will be moved to the week before the title is decided.

It’s another Covid-19 related rescheduling in college football as the Baylor Bears and Oklahoma State Cowboys will not play this Saturday: Instead the game has been moved to December 12th by the Big XII Conference.

”We are disappointed to postpone another game,” said Baylor Director of Athletics Mack B. Rhoades in a statement. “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,” said Rhoades.

This might have implications for the Big XII Championship game as Oklahoma State is 3-0 this season with all three wins being in the league, and are ranked #10 in the latest AP Poll. As the rest of the Big XII schedule is set to end on December 5th, there might be a team sitting at home awaiting this result to see if they’ll get a chance to head to AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX to play for the title.

Baylor is 1-1 on the season with a win over Kansas and a 27-21 loss in Morgantown to West Virginia on October 3rd.
