Big 12 Releases Revised Conference Schedule

Big 12 Releases Revised Conference Schedule

Yesterday, we were unsure if we would even have college football in 2020.

Well, not only do we now know that the Big 12, SEC, and ACC are pushing forward – but we have a brand new Big 12 conference slate to dissect.

The key elements are this: conference play will begin September 26th, and every team must have their lone non-conference game played before that date.

Every team will get at least two byes, and the Big 12 Championship Game is tentatively set for December 12th.

The amount of fans allowed at the games will be determined by each individual school.

For a breakdown of Oklahoma’s schedule specifically, Ryan Chapman has that for you here:

The Big 12 has elected, for now, to go for this thing in 2020 – much to the delight of the fans and players of the conference.

“Ultimately, our student-athletes have indicated their desire to compete in the sports they love this season and it is up to all of us to deliver a safe, medically sound, and structured academic and athletic environment for accomplishing that outcome,” Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a release.

Time will tell if the Big 12 and other conferences will be able to get this season off the ground, but what we do know for now – is that they are going to give it everything they have to make it work.
