Video: SEC commissioner says he wants LSU and Florida to make up canceled game
Though Georgia and South Carolina were able to reschedule their game in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, Florida’s game against LSU was canceled.
With no makeup date scheduled, it’ll be tough to make the game happen this season.
However, due to implications with the division standings, playing the game might become important, so SEC commissioner Greg Sankey would like to see the teams come together and figure out a makeup date.
On the SEC Network on Monday morning, analysts came together to discuss what options the two schools have.
ESPN analyst Paul Finebaum said in the video that he believes Sankey will force the two teams to square off at some point this season.
“You can argue that he’s late to the party, but I firmly believe that game will be played,” he said.
Both schools play non-conference opponents on Nov. 19, so Finebaum believes those opponents can be bought out to allow LSU and Florida to play.
