The Georgia-South Carolina game has been rescheduled and will now be played on Sunday afternoon.
Hurricane Matthew continues to impact this weekend’s college football schedule. On Thursday afternoon, the LSU at Florida game was postponed, with a rescheduled date a possibility but not a guarantee. Later in the evening it was announced that Georgia at South Carolina has been moved from Saturday to Sunday.
SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey released the following statement announcing the decision.
“Due to the potential impact of the hurricane on Columbia and the surrounding area, it is in the best interest of safety to play the game on Sunday rather than Saturday night,” Sankey said. “I appreciate the cooperation of the schools who worked closely to make the appropriate operational adjustments in order to accommodate this change in the schedule.”
The game was originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night. It will now be played at 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday at Williams-Brice Stadium and will still air on the SEC Network.
Georgia enters the contest at 3-2, having lost its last two games, at Ole Miss and vs. Tennessee. South Carolina is just 2-3 and has dropped three of its last four contests.
