SEC scheduling continues to be a challenge. This weekend’s Arkansas-Missouri game has been postponed due to COVID-19.
According to a release from the conference, the game was postponed because of a “combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals” within the Razorbacks program. However, Arkansas-Missouri isn’t the only game affected.
With the Razorbacks unable to play, Vanderbilt will instead play Missouri this weekend in a make-up of their October 17 game that was postponed. As a result, this weekend’s Vanderbilt-Tennessee game is off for the time being.
Dates for the rescheduled Vanderbilt-Tennessee and Arkansas-Missouri games will be released at a later time.
“We will continue to manage the remaining weeks of the football schedule to allow for as many games to be played as possible,” SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said.
