COLUMBIA, Mo. – Due to Hurricane Delta threatening the Baton Rouge, La., area this weekend, Mizzou Athletics and LSU Athletics have agreed to move Saturday’s game between the two schools to Mizzou’s Memorial Stadium in Columbia, Mo. The game between Mizzou and the reigning national champion LSU Tigers will kick at 11 a.m. on an ESPN platform to be announced.

“Due to the pending impact of Hurricane Delta on Louisiana and the surrounding area, it is in the best interest for the safety of everyone involved to move the game to Columbia,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said.  “It was critical to relocate the game to an SEC campus where SEC COVID-19 management protocols are in place and readily applied.  I appreciate the cooperation of the schools who are working closely to make the appropriate operational adjustments in order to prioritize the health and safety of our student-athletes while accommodating this change in the schedule.”

While Mizzou is now hosting this game, it is considered an LSU home game.
