The Baylor Bears have paused all football activities following recent positive COVID-19 tests.

“At this time and in the interest of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff, we have temporarily suspended all football-related activities. Their health and wellness will always be our top priority,” Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades said in a prepared statement. “We are taking all possible precautions and our focus remains playing the scheduled game with Oklahoma State at McLane Stadium on October 17.”

Luckily, the Bears were already on bye this week.

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • Texas volleyball is still at it, per an Austin American-Statesman report following the team’s latest sweep over the Iowa State Cyclones. From the Statesman: “Logan Eggleston’s 14 kills paced Texas in a 25-19, 25-22, 25-14 win over Iowa State at the Erwin Center. Iowa State was looking for its first-ever win in Austin. The Longhorns instead ran their home record against the Cyclones to 27-0. Texas (5-0) last lost a conference match at home in 2014. This 46-match streak at home remains UT’s best run since it joined the Big 12 ahead of the 1996-97 school year.”
  • ESPN projects Texas to beat the Oklahoma Sooners at the Red River Showdown this weekend. From 247Sports: “According to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Texas is projected to win the Red River Showdown against Oklahoma on Saturday. FPI gives the Longhorns a 67.0 percent chance of handing the Sooners their third straight loss to open Big 12 play.”
