Mizzou-Vandy First SEC Game to Be Postponed

The football game between Missouri and Vanderbilt has been postponed. The news was first reported by Mitchell Forde and Gabe DeArmond of Rivals, and confirmed by Brett McMurphy of Stadium.

Vanderbilt only had 56 scholarship players suited up for their game this past week against South Carolina. The recommended threshold to be able to play is 53.

This is the first SEC game that has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The conference has two bye weeks built into their schedule to account for circumstances like this. Even if this game is never made up, it is unlikely to affect the top of the SEC standings.
