Kentucky’s game against the Vanderbilt Commodores this weekend is in jeopardy, Kentucky Sports Radio has learned.

According to KSR’s own Matt Jones, it’s “50-50″ the game is played as scheduled.

“I would say right now it’s 50-50 the game with Vandy gets played,” a source told Jones. “They have major Covid issues and we have some as well. Could go either way”

This news comes after UK head coach Mark Stoops announced that three members of his offensive coaching staff are out. While he did not reveal the coaches’ names nor confirm that their absences are due to COVID, he shared the news when asked about the impact the pandemic has had on his team.

“We’re dealing with some situations here right now. I am down three offensive staff members right now who are not here, so we just have to deal with it the way it comes at us and do the best we can.”

“We’ve had issues,” Stoops said later when asked about the coronavirus. “I don’t think I’m allowed to get into specifics on that but yeah, we have issues with COVID. It’s not out of control. Let’s hope it stays that way.”


In response to the update, the University of Kentucky released the following statement:

“Kentucky looks forward to hosting Vanderbilt Saturday as currently scheduled.”

The Southeastern Conference is reportedly prepared to make an announcement regarding its schedule at 4 p.m. ET.

———-UPDATE 2———–

The SEC has announced that the Alabama at LSU and Texas A&M at Tennessee football games scheduled for Nov. 14 have been postponed due to positive tests, contact tracing & subsequent quarantine of individuals within the LSU and A&M football programs.

As of now, Kentucky’s matchup with Vanderbilt remains on as scheduled.

———-UPDATE 3———–

A second source tells Matt Jones that UK is now “optimistic” the game can be played as scheduled.
