UPDATE: The SEC has officially announced that the game won’t be played as scheduled.

LSU won’t play Florida as scheduled because of coronavirus.

According to Brett McMurphy and Brooks Kubena, the game has been postponed after the Gators were slammed with serious coronavirus issues, and as many as 29 players are being held out. It was scheduled to take place Saturday. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

McMurphy added that the “tentative” plan is to play the game Dec. 12.

Well, I think we all saw this coming and it’s now a done deal. It was only a matter of time before the plug was pulled on this game.

It’s really unfortunate, but there’s not much we can do about it now.

When it was first reported that only five players on the Gators were out because of coronavirus, I wasn’t worried at all.

As the number started to inch higher and higher, then it was clear that we had a serious issue on our hands.

Now, the game has been pushed back and one of the better matchups of the weekend won’t happen.

Hopefully, Florida is able to bounce back quickly because the last thing we need is more games being postponed.
