SEC's Week 11 slate just lost a game as the league suffers postponement
The Southeastern Conference has just lost a game for the upcoming weekend slate as Georgia and Vanderbilt will not play on Saturday.
Unlike games that have previously been rescheduled, it’s being reported that the Southeastern Conference does not have plans to make this one up.
This news was first reported by Cole Cubelic of the SEC Network and has since been confirmed by multiple outlets.
However, in a statement issued by the SEC on Friday, the league says this game could be rescheduled:
The Vanderbilt at Georgia football game of December 5 has been postponed due to the Vanderbilt football squad size and position availability falling below roster minimum requirements, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 protocols.
The Vanderbilt at Georgia game will be rescheduled for December 19. Should Georgia qualify for the SEC Championship Game on December 19, the Vanderbilt at Georgia game would be declared a no-contest and Georgia would represent the Eastern Division in the SEC title game.
The reason for the postponement comes from Vanderbilt’s side, as the Commodores did not have enough players to make the trip to Athens.
The Bulldogs still have a matchup against Missouri set to be played at some point but that game has not been officially rescheduled. Vanderbilt is still scheduled to play Tennessee.
