The Big 12 released its plan for the 2020 football season saying each team would play 10 games; nine conference games and one non-conference game.

The Army West Point athletic department released the following statement and said it recognizes the Big 12 Conference's decision to disallow nonconference away games.

Due to the modified schedule, Army football's scheduled contest against Oklahoma at Michie Stadium on Sept. 26 has been canceled for this fall. 

"We are disappointed to lose Oklahoma from our schedule this season, however we respect the Big 12's difficult decision," Army Director of Athletics Mike Buddie said. "I am saddened for our players, coaches, alumni and fans to miss out on what has been such a highly anticipated contest since it was first announced. Given the rapidly changing environment in college athletics, we've been working on numerous contingency plans in the event of decisions like this, and have already begun the process of finding a future date to host the Sooners."

Army West Point is currently working on an updated football schedule and as it finalizes those plans, the Ticket Office will reach out next week to current ticket holders with additional information outlining available options to retain account credits for future purchases, convert credits to a 2020 tax-deductible athletic gift, or request a refund.
