MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Saturday’s Oklahoma-West Virginia game has been postponed to December 12. The postponement is in response to Oklahoma being unable to meet the required COVID-19 thresholds, as established by the Big 12 Conference. The game time and television designation will be announced at a later date.
“I am disappointed for both teams, who have worked extremely hard in their preparation for this weekend’s game,” WVU Director of Athletics Shane Lyons said. “We will now look forward to honoring our seniors and hosting the Sooners on December 12.”
The Oklahoma football program has temporarily paused organized team activities due to recent positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing. The Oklahoma men’s basketball team paused activities today as well.
Previously in the Big 12, the Oklahoma State-Baylor and Texas-Kansas games were postponed due to COVID policies.
