LSU at Florida postponed, tentatively rescheduled for December 12”

The SEC said on Twitter that the game was postponed after "positive tests & subsequent quarantine of individuals with the Florida FB program".

Saturday's game between No. 10 Florida and LSU at "The Swamp" has been postponed after the Gators saw a surge in positive COVID-19 tests this week, it was announced Wednesday. It was the first SEC game rescheduled due to coronavirus-related problems and the 28th in the Football Bowl Subdivision to be postponed or canceled since August 26.

The 10th-ranked Gators are scheduled to host Missouri on Saturday, Oct. 24, before a bye the following week.

On the heels of Florida's Covid-19 outbreak, Texas A&M says it's evaluating its team and taking appropriate measures.

LSU at Florida was going to be the Tigers' first major test, a.

The reason for halting team activities on Tuesday was due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests from players.

Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin said he didn't think it would be "appropriate" to play the game this weekend.

Stricklin said that he had a suspicion that the team's trip to A&M could have been the cause of the outbreak.

So far, the LSU game is still on as of Wednesday morning. but as we all know, that could change quick.

Florida's shutdown came three days after Mullen's comments about wanting to pack 90,000 fans inside Florida Field to create a better home-field advantage against the Tigers. Mullen didn't double down Monday, but he didn't back down, either.

He brushed aside criticism and praised his guys for how well they have handled COVID safety protocols.

He finally backtracked two days later, apologizing if I offended people or anybody out there.

Prior to Stricklin's news conference Wednesday, the Baton Rouge Advocate reported the game was the second SEC game to get postponed. Have great respect for all of our local health officials and for what they've been able to do and what we've been doing here since July.

He added: "I would still not be surprised if one or two of them were random, and the randoms can throw you off within the [contact] tracing". "Going forward Dan will focus on calling plays and we'll let Dr. Lauzardo focus on the public health policy".
