The SEC has announced more changes to its football schedule this weekend.
Arkansas’ road trip to Missouri on Nov. 28 has been postponed, resulting in a rescheduling of games that include Vanderbilt now playing at Missouri this weekend (Nov. 28), along with the postponement of Tennessee’s game at Vanderbilt (Nov. 28).
The Arkansas at Missouri game was postponed due to a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Arkansas football program, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 management requirements.
Vanderbilt’s game at Missouri is a rescheduling of their game that was originally postponed on Oct. 17. The game will now be played at noon ET on Saturday on the SEC Network.
Tennessee’s game at Vanderbilt is postponed for the purpose of facilitating the rescheduling of the Vanderbilt at Missouri game. This rescheduling allows for the continued opportunity for all 14 teams to play all of its 10 games in the 2020 season.
“As we continue to adapt to the current realities, it important to remain flexible as we move forward in the final weeks of the season,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “Contact tracing continues to be the biggest contributing factor to game interruptions. We will continue to manage the remaining weeks of the football schedule to allow for as many games to be played as possible.”
The opportunity to reschedule the Arkansas at Missouri and Tennessee at Vanderbilt games will be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule will include December 19 as a playing date.
