KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A rash of COVID-19 cases and subsequent contract tracing at the University of Arkansas has forced the school to postpone this Saturday’s scheduled game against Mizzou.

The Southeastern Conference announced the postponement Monday, though Mizzou will still play this weekend, however.

The team will make up its game against Vanderbilt that had originally been scheduled for Oct. 17.

The make-up game will be played at noon, Saturday, Nov. 28, in Columbia.

Vanderbilt was originally scheduled to play Tennessee this weekend, but that game was also postponed to accommodate the changing schedule.

The league did not announce when or if Mizzou would make up the game against Arkansas.
