Two Big 12 basketball games scheduled for Thursday are off due to frigid temperatures and uncommon winter conditions in Texas and Oklahoma.

No. 9 Oklahoma and No. 12 Texas will not play Thursday, with a makeup date to be announced later this week. No. 15 Texas Tech and TCU, also postponed Tuesday, was also scrapped by the league and is expected to be made up before the conference tournament.

"Due to continuing inclement weather, the Texas at Oklahoma and Texas Tech at TCU men's basketball games scheduled for Thursday, February 18 have been postponed. Additional information will be released when available," the Big 12 said in a statement Wednesday.

Oklahoma is 8-4 in Big 12 play and 13-5 overall. Idle Baylor, ranked No. 2 but on pause due to COVID-19, leads the conference with a 17-0 record this season. The Bears are 9-0 in the Big 12.

Texas is 13-5 with a 7-4 Big 12 record.
