Just a short while after the news began to leak out, the SEC went ahead and confirmed the announcement: Kentucky and Georgia will now play on Oct. 31.
According to the SEC’s press release, the UK-UGA game will be moved from Oct. 24 to Oct. 31 with the Kentucky-Missouri game moving up one weekend to replace it on Oct. 24. This scheduling move comes as a result of two SEC games originally planned for Saturday, Oct. 17 (Vanderbilt-Missouri and Florida-LSU) that were postponed earlier this week due to positive coronavirus tests.

Florida, who has been forced to pause all football-related activities due to virus concerns, will now face Missouri on Oct. 31, which is why the ‘Cats will play Mizzou the week prior on Oct. 24. The Vandy-Mizzou and Florida-LSU game have both been moved to early December.
Let’s hope this doesn’t get any more confusing…
