Oklahoma State's season opener vs. Oregon State is officially canceled following the Pac 12 announcement Friday that football teams would be playing a conference-only schedule.

A day after the Big Ten announced the cancellation of non-conference football games – which led to speculation for other Power 5 Conferences – the Pac 12 Conference followed suit.

The Pac 12 announced Friday that the league would be transitioning to a conference-only football schedule, which officially cancels the slated Oklahoma State season opener vs. Oregon State.

The Big 12 Conference – along with the SEC and ACC – have not made any decisions regarding the fall football schedule, so it’s still possible Oklahoma State could play an opponent – including a Power 5 team – the first week of the season.

The Cowboys are also scheduled to host Tulsa and Western Illinois in the non-conference slate. The American Athletic Conference and Missouri Valley Conference have not yet declared any changes to football scheduling.

According to a report by FOX23 in Tulsa, there is a clause in the contract between the two OSU programs that states the Beavers will still play a game in Stillwater – returning the visit by Oklahoma State to Corvallis, Oregon, last year – at a later date if the one this season gets canceled.
