Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe, speaking today during the league’s football media days, said the new-look Big 12 (with 10 teams) shouldn’t affect the OU-Texas game.

Beebe said the conference likely will move a regular-season game or two to the first Saturday of December to fill the void of the lost conference championship game. But he said OU-Texas shouldn’t be one of them.

Beebe said one of the duties of a conference is to protect a league’s traditions, and he said OU-Texas played in October during the Texas State Fair is a tradition not to be trifled with.
