After the announcement of multiple positive tests within the LSU football program, their contest against Alabama this Saturday has been postponed.
“While it is unfortunate to have multiple postponements in the same week, we began the season with the understanding interruptions to the schedule were possible and we have remained focused throughout the season on the health of everyone around our programs,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said in a statement. “We must remain vigilant, within our programs and in our communities, to prevent the spread of the virus and to manage activities that contribute to these interruptions.”
Because LSU has a game tentatively scheduled for December 12 against Florida, the opportunity to reschedule the game against Alabama will need to be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule may include December 19 as a playing date.
