Missouri game against Georgia postponed due to COVID; 4th SEC game to be postponed

Posted Nov 11, 2020 4:38 PM

The November 14 Georgia at Missouri football game has been postponed due to combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within one position group of the Tigers' football program, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 management requirements.

Because Missouri has a game tentatively scheduled for December 12, the opportunity to reschedule the Georgia at Missouri game will need to be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule may include December 19 as a playing date.

This is now the fourth game within the SEC Conference to be postponed this week due to COVID-19.  Earlier this week on Monday, the conference announced that Mississippi State and Auburn would be rescheduled.

On Monday, Texas A&M halted all football activities because of multiple positive coronavirus tests, and by Tuesday they had also had their game against Tennessee postponed until December 12th.

There have also been multiple positive tests within the LSU football program that left the status of their game up in the air on Monday, but the league also made the call on Tuesday to postpone the matchup until the open date of December 12th.

This marks the most postponements within one week in the SEC this season, and the whole of college football, and marks the sixth time this season that the SEC has postponed a game due to COVID-19.
