STARKVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi State and Baylor have agreed to cancel the two remaining basketball games in its contract.

The Clarion-Ledger reports Baylor was scheduled to visit Starkville in November before the Bulldogs traveled to Waco, Texas, in 2013. An MSU spokesman says the cancellation is a mutual decision and no money will exchange hands.

The Bulldogs and Bears played against each other at the American Airlines Center in Dallas last season. Baylor won 54-52.
