The SEC will rearrange its schedule for next weekend, allowing for the Alabama Crimson Tide to travel to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers, according to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports and Matt Zenitz of Al.com. The originally scheduled Alabama vs. LSU game was scheduled for Nov. 14 but was postponed due to LSU dealing with COVID-19 issues.
The new rumored schedule for the Crimson Tide would still see them hosting Auburn on Nov. 28, however instead of playing Arkansas the following week Alabama would make the trip to LSU on Dec. 5. The Crimson Tide would then go to Arkansas on Dec. 12 for its 10th and final regular season game.
Ed Orgeron and the LSU Tigers should not be allowed to reschedule this football game. LSU should be forced to forfeit the game due to carelessness costing the SEC and others the chance to watch this weekend's game.
The LSU Tigers have not been immune to players deciding not to play this year as prominent wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase made an announcement yesterday to opt-out of the 2020 season and prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft. Chase was seen as a top wide receiver prospect in college and the top returning weapon on the Tigers offense.
For the first time in many of our lives, teams like Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia will only be playing SEC teams. That’s why I am ranking the top five games of the upcoming SEC conference-only schedule that I can’t wait to watch.
