It was set to be the second matchup of the season between the two teams, with Oklahoma taking the January 26 matchup by the narrowest of margins, defeating the Longhorns 80-79 behind 23 points from senior guard Austin Reeves.

Texas was without three key players in that game, with starters Jericho Sims and Courtney Ramey, as well as key rotational player Brock Cunningham, sidelined due to COVID-19 issues.

Texas also had three players, including starters Greg Brown and Matt Coleman, foul out of the contest at critical points.

The Iowa State and Oklahoma postponements have caused the total number of cancelations or postponements for the Longhorns to mount, with COVID-19 concerns being the cause of other postponements. 

So, with OU now not involved for the week, the Longhorns' next scheduled matchup that is still on the books is their Saturday tilt with the No. 13-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers in Austin. That game is set to tip-off at 2 p.m. CT and will be televised on ABC.
