Kevin Sumlin weighs in on Florida-LSU
Tennessee coach Butch Jones picked up an ally Friday from his next opponent, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin.
ESPN.com’s Chris Low asked Sumlin for his thoughts on the Florida-LSU situation. The game was postponed by the SEC on Thursday, and is running into road blocks when it comes to rescheduling. The Gators and Tigers do not share an open date, and a potential Nov. 19 makeup date gives LSU a difficult finish to the season of three road games in a 12-day period.
Sumlin echoed Jones’ thoughts from earlier in the week.
“They have to find a way to play that game,” Sumlin told Low. “I don’t see any way around it if they want to keep it fair for all teams.”
Both the Aggies and Vols are currently undefeated and leading contenders in their divisions. Contenders in both divisions take issue with the fact that a potential Florida or LSU with a 6-1 conference record could go to Atlanta over a hypothetical 6-2 Tennessee or Texas A&M (or Alabama, Auburn) that has the head-to-head advantage.
