More than half of games scheduled in the SEC this weekend have been postponed
Over half of the SEC’s games are cancelled this weekend, including four teams that are ranked nationally. Three games remain on the schedule for the conference this weekend.
All games scheduled for this weekend, those cancelled and those still on, are conference games.
A total of four games on Saturday, all featuring at least one team that is ranked in the top 25 in the nation, have been cancelled due to COVID-19 results. The trickle down has an impact not just on the SEC regular season but also the landscape of the College Football Playoff.
The teams impacted include Alabama, ranked No. 1 in the nation for the first time this season after Clemson fell at Notre Dame last Saturday night. Also Florida, coming off an impressive win over Georgia the week before and rising to No. 6 in the polls, sees their game cancelled.
A look at the four games that were impacted due to the coronavirus pandemic:
- No. 12 Georgia vs. Missouri
- No. 5 Texas A&M vs. Tennessee
- No. 24 Auburn vs. Mississippi State
- No. 1 Alabama vs. LSU
As of now, the three remaining games on the SEC’s schedule. Two of the games are the only games this weekend not featuring a ranked team:
- Vanderbilt vs. Kentucky
- Arkansas vs. No. 6 Florida
- South Carolina vs. Ole Miss
Last weekend, the Big Ten saw Wisconsin’s game against Purdue cancelled due to the pandemic and a high number of positive tests within the Badgers program. As of Wednesday morning, there are no cancellations in the Big Ten, set to enter its fourth week of games.
