Four SEC games were postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing last weekend, and the conference has already suffered one postponement this week. Saturday's game between Ole Miss and Texas A&M in College Station has been postponed due to continuing coronavirus issues within the Aggies football program.
The SEC has not announced a makeup date for the matchup. Texas A&M's game vs. Tennessee, which was originally scheduled for Nov. 14, was moved to Dec. 12 -- the conference's built-in bye week for any games that are postponed during the season. The conference announced last week that Dec. 19 -- the day of the SEC Championship Game -- can be used as a second makeup weekend for teams that don't participate in the conference title game.
Texas A&M had multiple players test positive last week, and several more out due to contact tracing. That dropped them below the 53-player limit mandated by the SEC.
