The West Virginia Mountaineers will be busy in late February as the Big 12 announced on Monday that the Mountaineers would play the Baylor Bears on Feb. 18.
The rescheduled game was one of two schedule tweaks for the Mountaineers. As part of the rescheduling of the WVU-Baylor game, the Big 12 pushed back the Mountaineers’ game with the TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth, Texas, from Feb. 22 to Feb. 23.
To work in the rescheduled games, the Mountaineers will play their originally scheduled game with Baylor on Feb. 15 in Morgantown, West Virginia. From there, the Mountaineers will travel to Waco to play the rescheduled game on Feb. 18 at 4 p.m. central (5 p.m. eastern) on ESPN2. After that, West Virginia is scheduled to face Texas in Austin, Texas, on Feb. 20.
So, to give the Mountaineers a bit more rest, the Big 12 pushed back their originally-scheduled game with TCU from Feb. 22 to Feb. 23. This means that the Mountaineers’ postponement from last weekend is still pending, as Saturday’s game was supposed to be played in Morgantown.
The Bears, meanwhile, host Oklahoma State that Saturday, Feb. 20, after playing the Mountaineers twice. The Big 12 is still working to reschedule the Bears’ game with Texas, postponed from Dec. 13 due to COVID-19. The Bears and Longhorns are scheduled to play on Feb. 2 as part of the original Big 12 schedule.
