IRVING, Texas (AP) — Big 12 teams will have to forfeit games and be given a loss if they are unable to play a conference game this fall because of COVID-19.

The Big 12 says a no contest will be declared only if both teams are unable to compete.

There are no plans to make up any games not played as scheduled.

Also, officials say there are no longer football roster thresholds in effect like there were last season and allowed teams to seek a no contest.
