The SEC announced Monday night that Tennessee's game at Vanderbilt on Saturday has been postponed.

In a release, the SEC said the reason for the postponement was to give all 14 teams in the SEC an opportunity to play all 10 games in the 2020 season.

Vanderbilt will now play at Missouri on Saturday in a game that was postponed on October 17.

Missouri's game this weekend against Arkansas was postponed due to COVID-19 issues in the Arkansas program.

"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. "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 SEC says they will evaluate whether the Tennessee at Vanderbilt game can be rescheduled for a later date, including December 19 which is the date of the SEC championship game.
