Army All-American Bowl will not be played this year

For the first time since the game's founding in 2000, the Army All-American Bowl will not be played this winter.

The reason is obvious and understandable -- the coronavirus pandemic has made it impossible to ask people to travel across the country for a 1-week event.

The All-American Bowl made the announcement on Tuesday, saying it intends to return in 2022 while also noting that it will still hold live commitment announcements during a two-hour special celebrating the Class of 2021 on Saturday, Jan. 2.

Similarly, the National Football Foundation canceled its annual awards dinner, and plans are currently up in the air about how to award the Heisman Trophy.
