Baylor RBs Trestan Ebner, John Lovett to Opt Out of 2020 Season

NCAA Football: Baylor at Oklahoma State

The Baylor football program has suffered a pair of big losses for the rest of the 2020 football season.

According to SicEm365, senior running backs Trestan Ebner and John Lovett have opted out the remainder of the season. 

Between both players, they had combined 177 yards on 54 carries and two touchdowns, plus 15 receptions for 225 yards and two receiving scores. The news comes one day after Baylor lost to the Texas Longhorns 27-16 in Austin on Saturday.


Both players have played big roles in helping Baylor go from one win in 2017 to a Big 12 Championship appearance in 2019. Lovett was Baylor’s leading rusher in his first three seasons, with nearly 1,800 yards and 17 scores. Ebner finishes his career with 844 yards and seven touchdowns, plus 83 catches for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns.

Baylor has had a rough season thus far, sitting at 1-2, while having just as many games cancelled or postponed as they’ve played. Games against Louisiana Tech and Houston were cancelled, and Oklahoma State was pushed to December 12th due to COVID-19 issues with the Bears or their opponent.

The Bears head back home and will host the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday from McLane Stadium in Waco.
