ATHENS, Ga. — This Saturday’s UGA game will be postponed as opponent Mizzou deals with COVID-19 cases.
According to a news release from the University of Georgia, the postponement is due to a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and quarantining of players and staff within the Missouri football program.
Mizzou already has a game slated for Dec. 12, so an exact date for the matchup is still unknown, though UGA says it COULD be on Dec. 19.
The pandemic has ravaged SEC football this season, and the UGA game is the latest casualty on this week's schedule from rising cases.
Alabama at LSU and Texas A&M at Tennessee were also postponed earlier this week.
The Auburn at Mississippi State and Texas A&M at Tennessee games have been tentatively rescheduled for Dec. 12.
