It’s been a rough week for the SEC Conference where COVID-19 has disrupted what was supposed to be a full weekend schedule. Georgia vs Missouri became the fourth game this week to be postponed.
The postponement comes on the heels of the Missouri program getting hit with a spread of the virus. The SEC added an additional bye week of December 12 in preparation for COVID complications. The Tigers already have a game rescheduled for that date leaving a question mark for when their game against Georgia will be played.
