2020 Big 12 football schedule: games start on September 12, Oklahoma-Texas set for October 10


Following the Big 12’s decision on Tuesday to continue playing the 2020 college football season, the conference released its weekly schedule on Wednesday. The league previously announced it will play a 10-game season, including its normal nine-game round robin schedule as well as an extra non-conference game.

This conference program will begin on September 26, the traditional week 4 of the college football season, with all non-conference games due to be played before this week. Each Big 12 team will have two weeks off with a potential third date off at the end of the season. Whether supporters are allowed in the stadiums will be determined team by team according to state guidelines.

The Big 12 Championship game is on December 12 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a week later than scheduled. The start of the season can be delayed for up to two weeks (October 10), with the title match being postponed until December 19.

The annual Oklahoma-Texas rivalry will still be played out at the Cotton Bowl on October 10 despite the previous cancellation of the State Fair of Texas.

The Big 12 announced that “improved COVID-19 tests,” including three coronavirus tests per week and return-to-play protocols following positive tests (ECG, troponin blood test, echocardiogram, cardiac MRI), will be implemented. implemented.

The Big 12 was the last Power Five conference to release its start date, but precedes the SEC in releasing its schedule. At this point, the SEC is the only one of three Power Five conferences slated for fall 2020 that doesn’t have a timeline, although it has detailed the opponents its teams would play last week.

The ACC, the other Power Five conference that continues with fall football amid the COVID-19 pandemic, will begin its 11-game season two weeks earlier, from September 7 to 12.

For months, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby has argued his league will remain patient, attentive and listen to his group of medical experts before making any decisions. “The state of mind is that it’s too early [to cancel]A Big 12 source told CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd on Monday. “Unless medics flip the switch, [we’ll go].  »

However, Bowlsby warned of likely disruptions during the season, noting that the conference will “pull the plug” if necessary.
