The scheduled Sept. 12 game between Oklahoma State and Tulsa has been pushed back a week due to disruptions in preseason practice caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The game will instead be played the following week in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on Sept. 19, per a release from Tulsa on Monday night.
“The safety and health of our student-athletes is always at the core of all of our discussions and decisions. Without time to properly prepare physically we would be putting our student-athletes at a greater risk of injury,” said Tulsa AD Derrick Gragg in the release. “An open date for both schools presented us with the opportunity to reschedule the game for a week later. I’m appreciative of Mike Holder and Oklahoma State University for their cooperation in coming to this decision.”
