2 SEC Games Altered Due To COVID-19
It's only Monday and the SEC has already had to make alterations to this coming weekend's schedule. Two games have been postponed due to Arkansas dealing with COVID-19, Arkansas at Missouri and Tennessee at Vanderbilt will not take place this weekend. Instead, to maximize the amount of games played, Vanderbilt will travel to Missouri.
Vanderbilt and Missouri were originally supposed to play on Oct. 17 but had to postpone the matchup due to COVID-19 protocols. The two schools will use this weekend to makeup the game as Arkansas is dealing with a COVID-19 issue preventing the program from being ready to play.
Arkansas and Missouri was postponed due to positive tests, contact tracing and quarantining individuals in the Razorback program.
Tennessee gets the short end of the stick in this instance as its game with Vanderbilt was postponed to allow the Commodores to play the Tigers. It is the second time in three weeks the Volunteers have had its game postponed this season.
This is the eight and ninth games of the SEC season that has been postponed due to programs dealing with COVID-19.
Arkansas is scheduled to host the Alabama Crimson Tide on Dec. 5, these COVID-19 issues put that game into question and begs the question, could Alabama play LSU on Dec. 5 if the Razorbacks can't play?
