A coronavirus outbreak within the Arkansas football program put the game in jeopardy late this week, but the game will still take place.
If Arkansas couldn’t have played, it would have marked the third LSU game postponed this season. The SEC moved LSU’s game in October against Florida to Dec. 12, the conference’s built-in open date, because of coronavirus cases within the Gators program.
LSU also had its game last weekend, scheduled against Alabama, postponed because a small number of coronavirus cases and subsequent contact tracing forced LSU below the SEC requirements. LSU coach Ed Orgeron said most of the Tigers’ players returned this week.
