Oklahoma State will play Nov. 13, but it won’t be against Louisville as previously scheduled, according to CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein.

The Cowboys are rescheduling their game against the Cardinals for a future date, and instead will tip off against North Texas at a neutral site in a double header. The second team is unknown.

OSU was scheduled to play Louisville in the Armed Forces Classic. The changes are another effect of coronavirus, according to Rothstein.

The Cowboys are 12-1 against the Mean Green, including nine straight wins before their 82-73 loss on Nov. 14, 2007. OSU is 3-0 since the defeat with its latest victory, an 87-61 thrashing on Dec. 3, 2014 at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

North Texas was the 2019 Conference USA regular season champions, and could be a better matchup than expected for the Cowboys.
