The Southeastern Conference moved to a conference-only schedule for the 2020 college football season Thursday, canceling OU's Sept. 12 home game against Tennessee.

The SEC's decision marks OU's first canceled game of the season. The Sooners are scheduled to play the Vols in 2024. 

OU's two remaining nonconference games are against Missouri State on Aug. 29 at home and Army at West Point on Sept. 26. The Big 12 is the only Power 5 conference that hasn't announced an altered schedule due to COVID-19 concerns.
