The SEC is utilizing their ability to make scheduling changes up to the Monday at 9pm/ET before a scheduled game. The Arkansas at Missouri game is being postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the Arkansas program. Missouri will instead be playing Vanderbilt this weekend.
Missouri and Vanderbilt were originally scheduled to play on October 17 but were postponed due to Vanderbilt COVID-19 problems. As a result Vanderbilt’s originally scheduled opponent, Tennessee, will now have a bye week. That game will be rescheduled for a later date.

“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.”
Missouri already has two games that had been postponed due to COVID-19 and could not afford a third idle week. As a result of the rescheduling, the SEC keeps the possibility alive of all 14 teams completing their 10-game schedule.
