The Alabama at LSU football game, scheduled for Saturday, has been postponed due to the impact of COVID-19 on the LSU team, the SEC announced Tuesday.

The league cited “a combination of positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the LSU” program. This weekend’s Tennessee-Texas A&M game has also been postponed for similar issues within the Texas A&M program.

“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 in a statement.  “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.”
