The Southeastern Conference announced Tuesday that both the Alabama at LSU and Texas A&M at Tennessee football games scheduled for November 14 are "postponed due to positive tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantine of individuals within the LSU and A&M football programs."

This comes on the heels of the Auburn at Mississippi State game being postponed and Auburn's announcement that they are pausing football practice and workouts.

"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."

"The Auburn at Mississippi State and Texas A&M at Tennessee games have been tentatively rescheduled for December 12. Because LSU has a game tentatively scheduled for December 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 December 19 as a playing date," the SEC said in a news release.
