Bowlsby said Monday at the start of the league’s football media days that Baylor interim President David E. Garland and the chairman of the school’s board of regents will address the Big 12 board Tuesday in Dallas.
Baylor is reeling from allegations that its staff failed to properly handled accusations of sexual assault involving some of its former players. The school faces at least three lawsuits over the issue.
Bowlsby says Big 12 members are committed to “eradicating sexual assault” on campus. He says “it almost goes without saying that when you combine alcohol and drugs and raging hormones and the experiences of 18-22 years old, it’s probably unrealistic to think that these kinds of things are never going to happen.”
The Big 12 has asked Baylor for a full accounting relative to the alleged sexual assaults on campus and the university’s response to that situation.
