Due to the possible threat to the Baton Rouge area from Hurricane Delta, the Southeastern Conference announced Wednesday it would move Saturday's LSU/Missouri game from Tiger Stadium to Columbia, MO.

“It was critical to relocate the game to an SEC campus where SEC COVID-19 management protocols are in place and readily applied," said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. "I appreciate the cooperation of the schools who are working closely to make the appropriate operational adjustments in order to prioritize the health and safety of our student-athletes while accommodating this change in the schedule.”

Kickoff will be at 11 a.m. Saturday on one of the ESPN networks.

"While we are disappointed to not play in Tiger Stadium this weekend, Hurricane Delta's current path and the need to play in a venue with SEC COVID-19 protocols in place made this change an absolute necessity," said LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all those in the path of this dangerous storm. Be safe," Woodward added.
