Big 12 Conference NCAA

Big 12 athletic directors contemplate moving conference championship game back


The Big 12 Conference continues to be at the forefront of forward-thinking during the coronavirus pandemic.

Commissioner Bob Bowlsby was the first to float an idea of a fall and spring college football season in order to miss the normal flu season in the winter. The Big 12 conference was one of the first to shut down athletic activities and then waited the longest to reopen in order to obtain as much information as possible.

Now? The athletic directors of the Big 12 are contemplating moving the football conference championship game from Dec. 5 to Dec. 12 in order to leave the Dec. 5 weekend free for any makeup games that get canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak within a program. This was reported by the Dallas Morning News.

“I think trying to build in flexibility makes sense. That’s not the decision we’ll make this kind of year,” Bowlsby, who isn’t a part of these discussions but confirmed they are happening, told DMN. “I hope the season is orderly enough that those kinds of options can be viable. I suspect that we won’t have that luxury.”

Oklahoma has played in the first three Big 12 Championship games since it was revived in 2017. The game takes place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the home of the Dallas Cowboys.
