Oklahoma’s unbeaten and top-ranked softball team was dealt an impromptu off week, all within a four-hour time period on Wednesday.

First, the Sooners announced what would have been a Wednesday night trip to Wichita State had been called off due to inclement weather in the area. The Sooners and Shockers have rescheduled that contest for 6 p.m. May 4.

Later Wednesday, the Big 12 Conference announced OU’s series at Baylor, slated to begin Friday and end Sunday, had been postponed as well.

OU cited “COVID-19 concerns within the Baylor program” as the reason for the postponement. The conference will be working with both programs to reschedule the series.

Unless the top-ranked Sooners can throw together a matchup at the last minute, OU will be off until it begins a three-game series with Red River rival Texas a week from Friday.
