Big 12 puts the decision about Texas and Baylor’s kickoff on hold

Posted November 11th, 2019


The Texas Longhorns must wait for all of the details about their upcoming date with Baylor’s Bears.

On Monday, the Big 12 announced that it will not yet reveal the times for four of the five games on next week’s schedule. The Longhorns and Bears will meet at Waco’s McLane Stadium at either 2:30 or 7 p.m. on Nov. 23. FOX or FS1 will televise the game.

The times and television information should be available after the conclusion of this weekend’s games.


Having survived triple overtime and TCU last week, Baylor (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) is one of five undefeated teams left on the FBS level. The Bears, who are ranked 12th in the AP poll, will host No. 10 Oklahoma this week. ESPN’s College GameDay show is set to be in Waco for those festivities.

Texas is the 22nd team listed in the AP’s poll. The Longhorns improved to 6-3 this season with a 27-24 win over Kansas State this past Saturday. Texas has won four of it six Big 12 games. UT will battle Iowa State on the road this weekend.

Texas owns an all-time record of 78-26-4 against Baylor. The Bears recently won four games during the five-year stretch between 2010 and 2014. UT’s 23-17 win in Austin last season, though, was the Longhorns’ fourth straight victory in the series.
