ATHENS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Georgia’s road football game against Missouri Saturday, November 14 has been postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining within Missouri’s football program, according to the SEC.

No word on whether the game will be rescheduled as of right now.

UGA head football coach Kirby Smarts addressed the game’s postponement Wednesday afternoon.

“Definitely the definition of 2020, which we talked to our team about earlier in the season,” said Smart. “It’s one of those deals where, you find out, you have a plan for plan A and a plan for plan B and we have obviously been working that way all year. We had said if a game gets canceled what we would do, and having a plan for it. As we found out yesterday and the day before that Missouri was having complications, we’ve got a plan to continue to work on us.”
