There won't be games rescheduled due to COVID-19 in the SEC this year.

SEC conference commissioner Greg Sankey announced on Monday afternoon that if a team does not have enough players to play due to positive COVID-19 tests, it will be forced to forfeit and the game will not be rescheduled.

This is in contrast to last season, where every conference in college football dealt with cancellations and rescheduled games, with all games that could not be played as scheduled ruled a no-contest.

The SEC becomes the first conference to make such an announcement, though other conferences are expected to follow suite as college football heads towards a return to normal.
