Big 12 Conference head coaches have agreed to a 2021 season structure that will raise the number of conference games from 24 to 32, D1Baseball's Kendall Rogers reported Thursday.
BREAKING: @Big12Conference head coaches agreed to a season structure that would include 32 conference games (up from 24) with four-game series on the weekend. Non-conference up to institutions but midweek timing TBD. #Big12 ADs expected to vote on this next Tuesday. Stay tuned.— Kendall Rogers (@KendallRogers) January 7, 2021
The Big 12 athletic directors will reportedly vote on the matter Tuesday. An approval would officially increase the number of conference games for the coming season, and will leave nonconference games up to individual institutions.
The proposal states that conference matchups will be played in four-game series on the weekends, leaving uncertainty about the potential for midweek games.
With the specific schedule still in limbo, the Sooners gear up for their fourth season under head coach Skip Johnson. The team finished the shortened 2020 season 14-4 and rose as high as No. 9 in national polls.
