Baylor 3rd B12 team to put off opener after La Tech outbreak

Louisiana Tech

WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor is the third Big 12 team forced to postpone its scheduled season opener because of the coronavirus. Louisiana Tech was supposed to play in Waco, Texas, on Saturday, but the school says it can’t play because of multiple positive COVID-19 tests. Tech officials say the positive tests and contact tracing affecting other players make it impossible to play the game. The school said it had only one positive test in a three-week span before the outbreak that comes less than two weeks after its campus was affected by Hurricane Laura. TCU and Oklahoma State also postponed this weekend. Seven Big 12 teams are still scheduled to play.
