Big 12 football: Virtual media day set for Monday
The Big 12’s annual football media days have undergone significant changes this year, but fans will still have an opportunity to watch.
The Big 12 Virtual Media Day is set for Monday on ESPN+ from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on two different streams, the conference announced Wednesday.
Media sessions with coaches will be on one stream, while the other will feature each coach on the Big 12 Now set as well as player interviews with the conference. The Big 12 Now set will include ESPN reporters Anish Shroff, Rod Gilmore and Dusty Dvoracek.
Big 12 correspondent Morgan Uber will conduct interviews with players.
Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley will speak with media at noon. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy will speak with media at 1 p.m.
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby will speak at 9 a.m. to open the one-day event, which was originally a two-day event scheduled for earlier this month. But the coronavirus pandemic forced the conference to adjust the event.
