NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Saturday’s Vanderbilt-Georgia game has been postponed due to a shortage of available players for the Commodores.

The game was postponed Friday amid COVID-19 issues and injuries on the Commodores' roster, putting them below the SEC’s 53-player minimum.

Vanderbilt was scheduled to head to Athens to face the 6-2 Bulldogs at 2 p.m. CST tomorrow. The game has been rescheduled to Dec. 19.

If Georgia qualifies for the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 19, the Vanderbilt-Georgia game would be declared a no-contest and Georgia would represent the SEC East in the conference title game.
