Georgia’s home football game against Vanderbilt canceled
Georgia’s home football game on Saturday, December 19 against the Vanderbilt Commodores has been canceled due to COVID-19, the SEC announced on Monday.
The two schools were scheduled to meet at Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga., on Saturday, Dec. 19. The game was canceled due to “…the Vanderbilt football squad size and position availability falling below roster minimum requirements, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 protocols.”
The Vanderbilt-Georgia game, which was set to be Senior Day in Athens, has been declared a no contest and will not be rescheduled.
Georgia and Vanderbilt were originally scheduled to play on Saturday, Dec. 5, but the game was postponed due to COVID-19 issues at Vandy and then rescheduled for December 19.
The Georgia Bulldogs are 7-2 this season and currently ranked 9th in the College Football Playoff Rankings that were released last week.
The Bulldogs are rumored to be searching for an opponent to play this weekend, per a report by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports.
Sources: Vanderbilt's game at Georgia on Saturday is cancelled. Georgia has been hunting around for a game today.
