High Noon Highlights (10/14): Oklahoma State tried to find replacement for Baylor game

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics and beyond.

NCAA Football: Baylor at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Oklahoma State was unable to schedule a replacement after Baylor cancellation:

During his weekly interview with Dave Hunziker, Mike Gundy alluded that Oklahoma State was looking for a opponent to fill the spot in the schedule left by the problems at Baylor with Covid-19. However they were unable to find a replacement.

“We actually tried to pick up an opponent for this week, unsuccessfully,” Gundy said. “Coach Holder was working hard to try to get us a game, but it didn’t work out.”

“We all have to deal with it,” Gundy said. “It comes back to — one of the areas that we talk about a lot in our culture and our organization is you’ve got to stay focused. If we let these things derail us in our thought process and our preparation worried about something that we can’t control, then it could affect you two weeks from now. Hopefully we have enough maturity in this organization and the players understand that it’s just the way it is. We’ve got to flip it and now we’ve got to get ready to play Iowa State.” {24/7 Sports}

Oklahoma State is now set to conclude its 2020 season with a Bedlam match in Norman as the Cowgirls will square off against rival Oklahoma on Nov. 12 in Norman.

Bedlam was originally scheduled as the season opener on Sept. 11 but was postponed due to COVID-19 precautions.

OSU is scheduled to play at Kansas this week before concluding the October portion of its schedule by hosting Texas and Texas Tech and then ending the 2020 campaign with the Thursday night Bedlam contest. {}
