Georgia originally had a day off on October 31, a week before the game in Florida. Now both teams will not work next weekend, and both teams will play on October 31. That’s when the postponed Florida game against Missouri will take place.
The Gators announced that 18 fellows had positive results earlier this week shortly after the Florida-LSU game ended. Now this competition will take place on December 12.
Earlier this week, Georgian coach Kirby Smart was asked how his team was doing with COVID-19.
“It simply came to our notice then. The most important thing is one day, one test, one situation far from a possible situation, as in Florida, ”Smart said. “We are very lucky. I think Ron (Curson) and the medical staff did a great job for us. “
Smart added that he felt that his team was still doing a good job.
“We feel like our players are doing a good job, but I’ll be honest with you when they’re not here, I don’t always know what they’re doing,” Smart said. “The biggest concern we have after the game is Sunday. Then they return to the usual Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.
“You are one exposed, one outbreak from the loss of some guys. So far we are lucky, but this week we do not have all the test results. “
Georgia’s opponent is solving its own COVID-19 problem this weekend, as Alabama coach Nick Saban received positive results on Wednesday. The second test, conducted on Thursday, returned negative. If the results of Saban’s tests with an interval of 24 hours on Friday and Saturday return negative, he can still train him on Saturday.
Alabama has not announced any positive COVID-19 test results for its players, and as of this publication, the Georgia-Alabama game is still ongoing. It is scheduled for 8pm ET on CBS on Saturday night.
On Friday night, Georgia posted a video from her Twitter account in which she indicated that she boarded a plane to go to Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
