Covid forces postponement of Arkansas’ game with Missouri this week

Arkansas’ game with Missouri on Saturday has been postponed and the Tigers will now play Vanderbilt, according to an announcement released late Monday afternoon.

Vanderbilt’s game with Tennessee was also postponed, creating the juggling of the schedule.

A combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Arkansas football program, consistent with Southeastern Conference covid management requirements.

The Vanderbilt at Missouri game is a rescheduling of a game postponed on October 17. The game will be played at 11 a.m. Saturday on the SEC Network.

The Tennessee at Vanderbilt game is postponed for the purpose of facilitating the rescheduling of the Vanderbilt at Missouri game.

This rescheduling of games 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.
