An official decision has been handed down by the SEC to postpone the Florida-LSU game – without a concrete plan to reschedule the game.

SEC postpones Florida-LSU game; no makeup scheduled at this time

Here is the SEC’s official statement on the move to postpone the game.

“We had a very productive phone call today with a great spirit of cooperation between the universities’ presidents and athletics directors and it became clear that the University of Florida could neither host nor travel to a game this weekend considering the circumstances,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “The developments of the hurricane in the last 24 hours, the projected magnitude of its impact and the unknown aftermath of this storm have resulted in this decision to seek another date to play the LSU-Florida game. We have to be sensitive to the possible imminent disruption to the state of Florida and in particular the Gainesville and surrounding area.”

The game was originally scheduled to be played Saturday at Noon local time. Florida released a statement Wednesday adamantly denying the game would be moving from Gainesville.

“The timing of this storm on a Friday and the uncertainty of its aftermath in the ensuing days make it particularly difficult to project the conditions for the remainder of the weekend as well as the opportunity for travel of teams and fans to or from Gainesville and other cities in Florida,” Sankey said. “I am appreciative of the cooperation of our universities on this matter.”

LSU currently holds a three-game winning streak in the annual cross-division rivalry against the Gators and have won five of the last six in the series.
