According to the university, positive tests and associated quarantine protocols eliminated one position group within the team, making it too hard to play a game.
It is not the first football game the team has had to reschedule. The Vanderbilt game scheduled as Homecoming in October was moved to December due to positive tests on the Vanderbilt team.
It's also not the first SEC game postponed this week due to COVID-19. LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Auburn and Mississippi State will also not take the field this weekend.
