LAWRENCE, Kan. — According to a media release from Kansas Athletics, Saturday's Big 12 Conference game between the Jayhawks and the Texas Longhorns has been postponed to Saturday, December 12. 

The Kansas football team was unable to meet the minimum position requirements established by the Big 12 Conference, thus the game must be postponed. 

According to KU Athletics, since November 8, the athletics department has conducted 825 Covid-19 tests with five returning positive on separate days of testing.

The Big 12 Conference requires 53 players available as a minimum required to play a game. The threshold was established prior to the 2020 season.

Kansas will now turn to its next scheduled game on November 28 at home against TCU.
