UA-Missouri football game rescheduled for Dec. 5


The Arkansas Razorbacks’ football game with the Missouri Tigers at Columbia, Mo., has been rescheduled for Dec. 5, according to a media release from the Southeastern Conference.

Here is the SEC’s revised schedule of games for December 5:

  • Arkansas at Missouri (rescheduled from Nov. 28)
  • Alabama at LSU (rescheduled from Nov. 14)
  • Florida at Tennessee
  • South Carolina at Kentucky
  • Texas A&M at Auburn
  • Vanderbilt at Georgia

This rescheduling of games allows for the continued opportunity for all 14 SEC teams to each play 10 games in the 2020 season, the release stated. The revised schedule is contingent on the absence of additional postponements prior to Dec. 5.

Arkansas’ game with Alabama at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, which was scheduled for Dec. 5, will be rescheduled by the SEC along with Ole Mis at LSU and Missouri at Mississippi State, if possible. The likely date for the for the Arkansas-Alabama game is Dec. 12, but that has not been officially announced by the SEC office.

“The cooperation and flexibility of our coaches, athletics directors and campus leaders along with the dedication of our student-athletes now provides the opportunity to reach this point in the season with the ability for each SEC team to play ten football games in 2020,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey in the SEC release. “We knew before the season there would be interruptions and scheduling challenges related to COVID-19 and we will continue to manage the remaining weeks of the football schedule to allow for as many games to be played as possible, with a continuing focus on determining an SEC champion.”
