Big 12 Conference Officially Cancels 2020 Athletic Seasons
The Big 12 confirmed what has been assumed since the NCAA canceled the spring championships on Thursday afternoon. With no championships, there's no need for a regular season.
That's exactly what the Big 12 has decided. They announced late Friday afternoon (March 13th) that the conference and non-conference competitions are canceled through the end of the school year.
Here is the announcement from the Big 12, which also says that all practices and meetings are also suspended through March 29th:
Due to the on-going developments related to COVID-19 the Big 12 Conference announces that all organized team activities whether organized or voluntary, including team and individual practices, meetings, and other organized gatherings, have been suspended until March 29 and will be re-evaluated at that time. In addition, all conference and non-conference competitions are cancelled through the end of the academic year, including spring sports that compete beyond the academic year.

That means the Red Raider baseball, softball, golf, tennis and track and field teams won't get the opportunity to finish the 2020 season.
