The action is consistent with SEC COVID-19 management requirements. The game is tentatively rescheduled for Dec. 12.
The announcement comes after Texas A&M and Mississippi State announced they were suspending football activities due to coronavirus cases reported among both teams Monday.
The Athletic reports Head Coach Jimbo Fisher confirmed cases among his team involving a student worker and one player. The two infected reportedly traveled with the team to South Carolina on Saturday, and university officials fear the road trip could have facilitated the virus's spread.
