LSU-Missouri game has officially been moved by the SEC
It’s now official, the Southeastern Conference has moved LSU’s scheduled home game against Missouri to Columbia due to Hurricane Delta.
The game was set to be played on Saturday night broadcast nationally by ESPN but those plans have obviously changed.
The LSU-Missouri game will now be played at Noon ET/11 a.m. CT. Television coverage for the game has yet to be decided, according to the SEC.
Here is the statement issued by the conference on Wednesday morning:
The Missouri at LSU football game scheduled for Saturday night in Baton Rouge has been moved to Columbia, Missouri due to Hurricane Delta, it was announced Wednesday.
The game will kick off at 11 am CT on Saturday on an ESPN platform to be announced.
“Due to the pending impact of Hurricane Delta on Louisiana and the surrounding area, it is in the best interest for the safety of everyone involved to move the game to Columbia,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said. “It was critical to relocate the game to an SEC campus where SEC COVID-19 management protocols are in place and readily applied. I appreciate the cooperation of the schools who are working closely to make the appropriate operational adjustments in order to prioritize the health and safety of our student-athletes while accommodating this change in the schedule.”
The SEC continues to monitor the path of Hurricane Delta and remains in communication with member schools to evaluate its potential impact on other athletic events this week.
