Arkansas AD provides comments in aftermath of postponed game against Missouri
Arkansas was scheduled to play Missouri on Saturday in Columbia, but due to positive COVID-19 tests and resulting contact tracing within the Razorbacks program, the game will be postponed until a later date.
Shortly after the official announcement from the SEC, Arkansas athletic director Hunter Yurachek released a statement on Twitter addressing the decision.
“[Coach] Pittman and I are disappointed that we could not find a viable path for our student-athletes to safely compete at Missouri this weekend,” Yurachek tweeted. “We will use this week as an opportunity to get healthy again and we look forward to playing Alabama and Missouri to end the season.”
Mizzou will instead play Vanderbilt on Saturday, as its game against the Commodores postponed from Oct. 17 was originally set to be made up on Dec. 12—but will be moved up, leaving Arkansas and Mizzou an open date then. No official announcement has been made, though.
Arkansas’ next scheduled game is set for Dec. 5 as it will host Alabama in Fayetteville.
