Florida-LSU in Limbo

Videos by OutKick

The University of Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin announced that the University of Florida has paused football activities today (via Andy Staples):

Florida, the tenth ranked team in the country, announced five new positive Covid-19 cases early Tuesday. The Gators are currently slated to host LSU on Saturday. It’s still early in the week, so it might be a few days until we know whether that game will happen as scheduled. We’ll keep you updated on any further developments with this story as they happen.

On Monday, Vanderbilt-Missouri became the first SEC game to be postponed over Covid-19 issues. The SEC built two bye weeks into the schedule to have flexibility for circumstances like these.
