A top-25 showdown between Baylor and West Virginia slated for Tuesday has been postponed after COVID-19 issues within West Virginia’s program popped up on Monday morning, sources told CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander. A date to make up the game is expected to be set at a later time.

It is one of a handful of high-major games that are now off the Tuesday schedule as teams grapple with the challenges the pandemic continues to present. Syracuse-Clemson is also off Tuesday as the Tigers program remains in limbo as it deals with its own contact tracing and quarantine measures after a positive test this week. They also had to postpone their game Saturday against North Carolina.

In addition, Tennessee at South Carolina, Vanderbilt at Missouri and Villanova at Xavier are also postponed indefinitely because of COVID-related issues. Those come on the heels of a weekend that saw more than a half-dozen power-conference postponements or cancelations in the sport.
