Big 12 Bands, Spirit Squads Will Not Travel to Road Conference Football Games

Big 12 football games should be extra quiet this fall, and it’s not just because of a lack of, or limited number of, fans.

As a cost-saving measure, Big 12 bands and spirit squads will not travel to road conference football games under a recommendation by athletic directors, as first reported by the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

”It’s among a multitude of recommendations that are under consideration,” Big 12 spokesman Bob Burda said.


The recommendations will be reviewed by the Big 12 board of directors later in the month. We should find out more information about this in a couple of weeks as the conference holds it virtual football media days July 20 and 21.

Regardless, it’s another wrench in what is sure to be an usual college football season. The conference is also holding conversations on different options for schedules, game cancellations, testing and much more as we are less than two months away from Week 1, which is set to kick off on Saturday, September 5th.
