The SEC really does mean more when it comes to rescheduling games. This afternoon, the league announced a revised schedule for next Saturday, December 5 that adds Alabama at LSU and Arkansas at Missouri, which were postponed earlier this year, and pushes back three games to a later date to be determined. The Alabama at Arkansas, Ole Miss at LSU and Missouri at Mississippi State games, originally scheduled for December 5, will be rescheduled. Kentucky is not affected.
Here’s the revised schedule of SEC games for December 5:
- Alabama at LSU (rescheduled from Nov. 14)
- Arkansas at Missouri (rescheduled from Nov. 28)
- Florida at Tennessee
- South Carolina at Kentucky
- Texas A&M at Auburn
- Vanderbilt at Georgia
Because CBS had rights to the originally scheduled Alabama at LSU game on November 14, the rescheduled game on December 5 will be televised by CBS at 7 pm CT / 8 pm ET as part of a CBS doubleheader.
The following games were originally scheduled for December 5 and will now be rescheduled:
- Alabama at Arkansas
- Ole Miss at LSU
- Missouri at Mississippi State
“The cooperation and flexibility of our coaches, athletics directors and campus leaders along with the dedication of our student-athletes now provides the opportunity to reach this point in the season with the ability for each SEC team to play ten football games in 2020,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “We knew before the season there would be interruptions and scheduling challenges related to COVID-19 and we will continue to manage the remaining weeks of the football schedule to allow for as many games to be played as possible, with a continuing focus on determining an SEC champion.”
Pour one out for the folks in Birmingham, because I’m sure this will all change again next week.
