Big 12 contender forced to pause football operations, reschedule game due to COVID-19
A major Big 12 matchup has been postponed this weekend, as Oklahoma’s football program was forced to pause all operations while the team deals with COVID-19 issues.
Oklahoma put out a short press release on Wednesday, stating “the Oklahoma football program has temporarily paused organized team activities due to recent positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing”.
There is no word on how many positive tests have been uncovered, and the statement reported the West Virginia matchup will be rescheduled for December 12.
After losing its first two games of the season, Oklahoma is on a six-game winning streak, getting ready to hit the road to play the 5-3 West Virginia Mountaineers.
The 2020 season has brought a new normal to college football, with major programs pausing operations left and right and conferences scrambling to reschedule games. Let’s hope everyone within Oklahoma’s program comes out with no serious health issues.
