Vandy-Georgia Canceled After Commodores Can't Meet Roster Requirements

ESPN's Cole Cubelic reports the Vanderbilt-Georgia game has been canceled. As of Tuesday, Vandy interim head coach Todd Fitch wasn't sure if he'd have enough players to field a team. Many of his players were contemplating opting out of the trip to Athens to face Georgia after being blown out 41-0 last Saturday at home against Missouri.

Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger reports that Vandy couldn't meet the number of players required to play Saturday's game. Brett McMurphy reports this Saturday's game was canceled due to COVID.

Kicker Sarah Fuller, from the Vandy women's soccer team, was scheduled to be with the team at Georgia, but interim head coach Fitch was also attempting to get Vandy's 2019 kicker, Ryley Guay, on the roster for the Georgia game as well.

It wasn't just on-field issues this week for Vandy. Radio play-by-play guy Joe Fisher resigned and announced he was entering rehab.

Vandy is scheduled to play a rescheduled game December 12 in Knoxville. The Vandy-UGA game has been rescheduled for December 19.
