The SEC will try to reschedule this game later in the season, but if COVID-19 postponements keep happening, it will obviously be hard to fit in a full schedule before postseason play begins.

Kentucky (9-3, 2-2 SEC), looking to end a two-game skid after falling to No. 7 Texas A&M and No. 4 South Carolina, is set to continue SEC play on Sunday vs. Vanderbilt inside Memorial Coliseum. The game will tip at 5 pm ET on the SEC Network.

The men’s basketball team is also set to play at Auburn on Saturday at 2 pm EST on ESPN. That game is still scheduled to be played.
