Alabama and LSU were scheduled to play on Saturday, Nov. 14 at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing at LSU forced the game to be delayed, which presented a problem since LSU’s game vs. Florida had already been rescheduled for Dec. 12 — the conference-wide bye week built in to accommodate for scheduling changes.
The SEC solved the problem. The conference announced Friday that the Crimson Tide and Tigers will tee it up on Saturday, Dec. 5, salvaging one of the best rivalries in the conference. Game time is set for 8 p.m. ET and will be part of an SEC on CBS doubleheader.
