No. 2 Baylor postpones three more games due to COVID-19 issues

Second-ranked Baylor postponed three more games on Monday due to continued COVID-19 issues.

The Bears had previously postponed two games earlier this month due to the Big 12’s interruption guidelines.

Baylor (17-0, 9-0 Big 12) is one of the nation’s two remaining undefeated teams, along with Gonzaga.

The latest postponements are a home game against No. 7 Texas Tech on Saturday and a home-and-home set with No. 14 West Virginia. The Bears were slated to visit the Mountaineers on Feb. 15 and host the school on Feb. 18. The latter game had been rescheduled from Jan. 12.

Baylor previously postponed last Saturday’s home game against TCU and Wednesday’s road game at No. 12 Oklahoma.

The next scheduled Baylor game is Feb. 20 at No. 23 Oklahoma State.

The Bears last played on Feb. 2 when they won 83-69 at then-No. 6 Texas.

In addition to the five postponements this season, Baylor still has a game against Texas (Dec. 13) that hasn’t yet been rescheduled.

The Big 12 has indicated it will work with the schools to reschedule the contests.

The Bears also had a highly anticipated clash against top-ranked Gonzaga postponed on Dec. 5. That game was unlikely to be rescheduled even before the recent rash of Baylor postponements.
