DALLAS, Tx. — Going into Monday four of the power-five conferences had announced a shift in plans for the upcoming football season. but the one conference that Missouri State was waiting on, was the quietest.

In our Bear Nation Report, the Big 12 has made up it’s mind.

So far it’s good news for Missouri State in terms of keeping its opener against Oklahoma.

As expected the Big 12 is moving to a nine conference and one non-conferece regular season format.

Also as of note, the non-conference game must be a home opponent for the Big 12 school.

The conference didn’t release a schedule on Monday, but it’s trending in the right direction for the Bears to get that game.

So here it is boiled down from the Big 12 as it relates to Missouri State.

  • Big 12 want to start conference games mid-to-late September, meaning late August is still attainable.
  • Non-conference must be a home game. The only other non-conference game on OU’s schedule is at Army, which is in West Point, N.Y.
  • The Valley also has to decide what it will do for the season, but they aren’t expected them to limit schools to a conference only formats.
