The SEC weekend series between No. 2 Tennessee and Missouri in Columbia, Missouri has postponed the Saturday game in favor of a doubleheader on Sunday.

According to Tennessee’s game notes from Friday, “Saturday’s originally scheduled game has been postponed due to expected high winds and low temperatures. The Vols (15-4, 0-1 SEC) and Tigers will now play a doubleheader on Sunday consisting of two seven-inning games which will be streamed on SEC Network+ through the ESPN app.”

Game 2 between Tennessee and Missouri will take place at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. Game 3 between the teams will take place approximately 30-45 minutes after Game 2.

Tennessee only found one run on three total hits thanks to a Christian Moore home run in the sixth inning.
