Editor's note: The athletic program clarified that the game was not canceled. It will not be played on April 18, and they are determining if it will be rescheduled.

Oklahoma postponed its spring game due to the coronavirus pandemic. The spring game was initially set for April 18. Athletic Director Joe Castiglione announced the cancellation on WWLS to The Oklahoman's Berry Tramel, and it was later made official via OU football's Twitter.

"I don't see any way (the spring game) is going to happen," Castiglione said. "I can't sit here and tell you when any team is going to be able to get back and have a normal practice. So to sit here and think we're going to have a spring game and not be able to even say when we can return to practice is silly."

Coronavirus has swept the globe and canceled sporting events worldwide. The NCAA canceled all remaining winter and spring seasons, and the NBA, NHL and MLS all suspended their seasons.
