KU football game vs. Texas canceled, won’t be rescheduled


LAWRENCE, Kan. (KSNT) – KU Athletics announced Thursday the season finale for the Jayhawks is canceled.

KU said the game against Texas scheduled for Saturday was canceled because of the shutdown of football operations at the University of Texas due to recent positive COVID-19 tests.

“I am very disappointed our team won’t get another chance to compete this season, but unfortunately that is out of our control,” said Head Coach Les Miles in a news release. “Our team played very hard last week on the road, and I know they were eager to get back on the field to face a very good Texas team this weekend. With our season complete, I would be remiss not to recognize our student-athletes and staff for diligently following the medical guidelines set for them this year. I am very proud of their efforts and proud to be the head coach of this football team. Rock Chalk, Jayhawk.”

The game will not be rescheduled. The Big 12 Conference determined the game “no contest.”

KU finishes the season 0-9.
