Beyond the Fort: Teams deal with COVID fallout across NCAA Football

Consider TCU trendsetters.

After the Horned Frogs announced that their season-opener against SMU was delayed due to threshold issues put in place by the Big 12 conference, well, other programs seemed anxious to follow suit.

First, it was Tulsa, who dealt with enough positive tests within their program to push back their scheduled opener at Oklahoma State a week, then, Tuesday evening, Baylor followed when Louisiana Tech dealt with a COVD outbreak of their own.

The ten member Big 12 conference is down to seven teams expected to open their seasons Saturday, with the best matchup on the weekend belonging to Louisiana-Lafayette and Iowa State.
