Georgia at Missouri football game postponed due to COVID-19

By Kevin Kelley -

The Georgia Bulldogs at Missouri Tigers football game has been postponed due to COVID-19, the SEC announced on Wednesday.

The two schools were scheduled to meet at Faurot Field in Columbia, Mo., on Saturday, Nov. 14. The game was postponed due to “…combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Missouri football program.”

Georgia and Missouri do not share an open date in which they can reschedule the game. The Bulldogs are off on Dec. 12, but the Tigers previously had their postponed game against Vanderbilt rescheduled for that date.

Below is the statement from the SEC on the possibility of rescheduling the Georgia-Missouri game:

Because Missouri has a game tentatively scheduled for December 12, the opportunity to reschedule the Georgia at Missouri game will need to be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule may include December 19 as a playing date.

Georgia is 4-2 so far this season. The Bulldogs are next scheduled to host the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday, Nov. 21 and the game will be televised by the SEC Network at 7:30pm ET.

Missouri (2-3) will now be off on consecutive weekends as the Tigers did not play on Nov. 7. Their next scheduled contest is on the road against the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday, Nov. 21 (7:30pm ET, SECN Alternate).
