Oklahoma-Tennessee Game Canceled as SEC Goes to Conference-Only Schedule

Oklahoma-Tennessee Game Canceled as SEC Goes to Conference-Only Schedule

Mere milliseconds within each other, the 2020 Big 12 Virtual Media Day set for Monday was canceled and the SEC has announced it will be playing a 10-game, conference-only schedule for the 2020 season.

The obvious impact here for Oklahoma is that this means their second game of the year against Tennessee is officially no more.

This has been the trend of the last few weeks, and is not really all that surprising to see the SEC make this decision.

The ACC announced yesterday they would be playing one, in-state non-conference game – but even under that set up the Sooners-Volunteers matchup would not work.

All eyes are now squarely on the Big 12 as they try to figure out what they want to do with their season, as they are not in as easy of a position as the other major conferences seeing as they have just 10 total teams.

The Big 12 will either have to have everyone play somebody twice, add a team to the conference (like BYU), or play at least one non-conference game against a Group of 5 opponent to get their 10th game.

This is a very fluid situation, so stay plugged in to 107.7 The Franchise both on the air and on the web for all the latest on this ever-changing college football landscape.
