The SEC has confirmed this game will be postponed and played on Dec. 12. That week is essentially a bye for the entire league with the SEC Championship Game taking place Dec. 19.

So it’s safe to think that any games that get postponed moving forward could end up being played the week of Dec. 12.

College football has been drastically affected by the coronavirus, which has led to numerous games getting postponed and even outright canceled.

Now, the SEC has seen its first game postponed, as this week’s Missouri Tigers vs. Vanderbilt Commodores game is being moved to a later date, according to Power Mizzou.

Vanderbilt has been hit hard by injuries and the coronavirus, as they only had 56 scholarship players suit up during their loss to South Carolina last weekend and may be below the threshold of 53 players recommended to play a game this week.

If this postponement comes to pass, we could see the SEC shuffle other games to get this game played later in the season. Vanderbilt was already set to have a bye next week, while Missouri was set to play at Florida. The Tigers have a bye the week of Nov. 7.

Kentucky is currently slated to play at Missouri on Oct. 31 and host Vanderbilt on Nov. 14.
