No. 2 Baylor is one of a handful of ranked programs that will play three games next week as the Big 12 announced schedule adjustments ahead of its conference tournament.

The Bears, who returned to action Tuesday night following a lengthy layoff necessitated by COVID-19 protocol, will play No. 10 West Virginia on Tuesday, Oklahoma State on Thursday and No. 18 Texas Tech on Sunday as part of the newly announced schedule. West Virginia, Texas Tech and No. 14 Texas will similarly play three games apiece during the week.

No. 7 Oklahoma will play twice -- at Oklahoma State on Monday and vs. Texas on Thursday.

The full Big 12 schedule for the week of March 1-7 is as follows:

Monday, March 1

Oklahoma at Oklahoma State

Tuesday, March 2

Baylor at West Virginia

TCU at Texas Tech

Texas at Iowa State

Thursday, March 4

Iowa State at Texas Tech

Oklahoma State at Baylor

TCU at West Virginia

Texas at Oklahoma

Saturday, March 6

Oklahoma State at West Virginia

Iowa State at Kansas State

Sunday, March 7

Texas Tech at Baylor

Texas at TCU

Further, Baylor's Feb. 25 contest against West Virginia was canceled to avoid scheduling a team to play three games in successive weeks.

The Big 12 had left the week of March 1-7 open in case of makeup games. The conference's tournament will take place in Kansas City from March 10-13.
