    Tennessee’s game at Vanderbilt this weekend has been postponed, the SEC announced Monday evening.

    The game between the Vols and Commodores has been postponed for the purpose of facilitating the rescheduling of the Vanderbilt at Missouri game that was postponed earlier this season. This rescheduling of games allows for the continued opportunity for all 14 teams to play all of its 10 games in the 2020 season.

    “As we continue to adapt to the current realities, it important to remain flexible as we move forward in the final weeks of the season,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey in a statement. “Contact tracing continues to be the biggest contributing factor to game interruptions. We will continue to manage the remaining weeks of the football schedule to allow for as many games to be played as possible.”

    The opportunity to reschedule the Arkansas at Missouri and Tennessee at Vanderbilt games will be evaluated. The rescheduling of games on the remaining SEC football schedule will include December 19 as a playing date.

    Tennessee will be back in action next Saturday against No. 5 Florida inside Neyland Stadium. A kickoff time has not yet been established.
