COLLEGE FOOTBALL

The Alabama at LSU and Texas A&M at Tennessee football games of Nov. 14 have been postponed due to a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the LSU and Texas A&M football programs, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 management requirements.

“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,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “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.”

It was announced Monday that the Auburn at Mississippi State game of Nov. 14 has been postponed due to positive tests and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Mississippi State football program.

The Auburn at Mississippi State and Texas A&M at Tennessee games have been tentatively rescheduled for Dec. 12. Because LSU has a game tentatively scheduled for Dec. 12, the opportunity to reschedule the Alabama at LSU game will need to be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule may include Dec. 19 as a playing date.

  • The Yellow Jackets have won four-straight night games at Bobby Dodd Stadium, including both of its night contests at home under head coach Geoff Collins — a 28-26 win over NC State on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2018 and a 46-27 triumph over Louisville on Friday, Oct. 9 of this season.
  • Tech has been especially dominant under the Bobby Dodd Stadium lights on Saturday nights, as the Jackets have won seven-straight Saturday night home games. GT’s last loss on a Saturday night at home was a 30-24 defeat to Georgia in 2009.
