Saturday’s game between Vanderbilt and Missouri has been postponed due to COVID-19 issues within the Commodores’ program, the SEC announced Monday.
The league announced the game is postponed “due to positive tests & subsequent quarantine of individuals within the Vanderbilt FB program,” and “the action is consistent with SEC COVID-19 management requirements.”
