Yet another college football game is canceled this weekend, and this time it’s the Missouri Tigers vs. the Georgia Bulldogs scheduled for Saturday. An outbreak of Covid-19 due to positive tests, as well as contact tracing and quarantining.
NEWS | The Georgia at Missouri FB game of Nov. 14 is postponed due to positive tests, contact tracing & subsequent quarantine of individuals within the Missouri FB program. The action is consistent with SEC COVID-19 management requirements.— Southeastern Conference (@SEC) November 11, 2020
The game could possibly be rescheduled, but since Mizzou is already on the books to play Vanderbilt on December 12th, an official release from the school says that could be a challenge:
COLUMBIA, Mo. - The November 14 Georgia at Missouri football game has been postponed due to combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within one position group of the Tigers’ football program, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 management requirements.
Because Missouri has a game tentatively scheduled for December 12, the opportunity to reschedule the Georgia at Missouri game will need to be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule may include December 19 as a playing date.
The SEC Championship Game was originally scheduled for December 19th, but even that date could be in jeopardy now. It’s also possible this game is played on the same day as the title game, as right now the Florida Gators appear to be in the drivers seat to win the SEC East division. Both Georgia and Mizzou are in the East, so if nothing else changes there could be a title game without either of them happening while they play.
Georgia was listed as a 13.5 point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
