Baylor Cancels Opening Game Against LA Tech Over Coronavirus


With the Big 12 football season already delayed, Baylor's season opener has now been canceled.

The Bears had been scheduled to host Louisiana Tech on Saturday. But now the game has been canceled amid reports that the Bulldogs have been hit hard by the Coronavirus.

Reports total 38 players who've tested positive.

Louisiana Tech Athletic Director Tommy McClelland blames Hurricane Laura, saying the storm knocked out power throughout much of the region forcing many players' families to take in relatives and friends, accelerating the spread of the virus.
