Although the Southeast Conference announced earlier this week the postponement of the fall seasons in volleyball, soccer and cross country, the college football season seems to be on track, for now.
The SEC has remained steadfast on keeping the football season on track despite the Big 10 and PAC 12 announcing conference-only schedules, and the Ivy League canceling all fall sports.
The SEC says it has several contingency plans in place just in case its pressured to delay the start of the season -- too many to layout here.
Georgia and Florida fans will be happy to know both Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity and Florida AD Scott Stricklin say the annual rivalry battle between the two schools, for now, still will be played in Jacksonville, Fla. on Oct. 31.
McGarity told DawgNation.com on Thursday both he and Stricklin discussed the location of the game.
“Scott (Stricklin) and I spoke about this on Monday and agreed the game would remain in Jacksonville,” McGarity told DawgNation.
The SEC continues to monitor developments related to COVID-19 as it evaluates the potential impact on fall schedules in all sports, with the understanding that the primary responsibility of the SEC and its institutions is to ensure the health and well-being of its student-athletes.
The question remains: will fans be allowed in the stadium and if so, will it be a full stadium or a select few? And will those fans be required to social distance and wear masks. Nothing has been set in stone as far as allowing fans to attend.
