The Southeastern Conference office in downtown Birmingham has been very busy today.

According to tweets sent out by the league office three November 14th SEC games have been postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests & subsequent quarantine of individuals.

They include:

  • Alabama vs. LSU in Baton Rouge
  • Auburn vs. Mississippi State at Starkville
  • Texas A&M vs. Tennessee at Knoxville

The league has tentatively rescheduled the Auburn/Mississippi State game for December 12. No news on the other games, but this is the second game that has been cancelled for LSU.

There are four SEC games still left on November 14th schedule.

Considering it was a bye week for both Alabama and Auburn last week, if you are starved for football, check out the UAB game at Legion Field against North Texas State. The kickoff is at 2:00pm. For the first time in a while, UAB Football will have everyone’s attention. Who knows you might become a fan of the Blazers!
