Texas will have to wait a few weeks to beat Kansas.
This Saturday’s game in Lawrence has been postponed until Dec. 12 as KU failed to meet the minimum position requirements the Big 12 established earlier this season due to a combination of COVID-19 contact tracing and injuries.
The specific position group was not announced.
The Big 12 has mandated a minimum of 53 players available to play a game with each position group having its own individual number.
Texas will next take the field Nov. 27 at home against Iowa State. Kickoff for that game will be at 11 a.m.
