Baylor has suspended all football-related activity due to active COVID-19 cases within the program.

No. 10 Oklahoma State has its lone bye week of the season this weekend before its scheduled to visit the Bears on Oct. 17 in Waco, Texas. That game will currently move forward as scheduled, according to Baylor director of athletics Mack Rhoades.

“At this time and in the interest of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff, we have temporarily suspended all football-related activities. Their health and wellness will always be our top priority,” Rhoades said. “We are taking all possible precautions and our focus remains playing the scheduled game with Oklahoma State at McLane Stadium on October 17.”

The Bears (1-1, 1-1 Big 12) had two non-conference games against Louisiana Tech and Houston postponed because of health concerns surrounding COVID-19 before they started their season. Baylor defeated Kanas 47-14 then loss 27-21 in double overtime at West Virginia last weekend.

OSU (3-0, 2-0 Big 12) is the last remaining unbeaten team in the Big 12 with wins against Tulsa, WVU and KU.
