Big 12 Conference commissioner Bob Bowlsby takes the stage on the first day of Big 12 Conference NCAA college football media days Monday, July 15, 2019, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Among the things Bowlsby spoke about was the NCAA's transfer portal.

The Big 12 canceled its virtual media day, the league announced Thursday.

The event was scheduled for Monday, Aug. 3. It was originally planned for July 20-21 before it was postponed.

"There continues to be a lot more questions than answers about what the football season will look like," Bowlsby said. "A media day is intended to talk football and the prospects for the season. Part of that discussion is who you will be playing and when. With the ongoing consideration of scheduling models by our Board of Directors, this is the best course of action at this time."

The conference has yet to finalize if the event will be rescheduled again.
