Alabama-LSU, Texas A&M-Tennessee games postponed due to COVID-19

Two more Southeastern Conference games scheduled for Saturday are off due to COVID-19. 

The SEC announced on Tuesday the postponements of the Alabama Crimson Tide-LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies-Tennessee Volunteers games because of coronavirus issues within the Tigers and Aggies. 

"While it is unfortunate to have multiple postponements in the same week, we began the season with the understanding interruptions to the schedule were possible and we have remained focused throughout the season on the health of everyone around our programs," SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said in the prepared statement. "We must remain vigilant, within our programs and in our communities, to prevent the spread of the virus and to manage activities that contribute to these interruptions."

On Monday, the game between the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers was postponed. Both programs are currently dealing with virus outbreaks.

The Auburn at Mississippi State and Texas A&M at Tennessee games are tentatively rescheduled for Dec. 12. Alabama at LSU could be shifted to Dec. 19, as LSU is currently scheduled to face the Florida Gators on Dec. 12. However, the SEC title game is on Dec. 19 and likely won't be pushed back a week. 

Alabama-Kentucky, LSU-Arkansas, Texas A&M-Ole Miss, Tennessee-Auburn, and Mississippi State-Georgia all remain on the calendar for Nov. 21 as of Tuesday afternoon.
