This Saturday's LSU vs. #1 Alabama game has been postponed by the SEC due to a COVID
breakout through the Fighting Tigers roster. Apparently, word has leaked that several LSU football players attended a Halloween party after returning from the Auburn game.
"Multiple players, including starters, will be unavailable". coach Ed Orgeron said on Monday. Some players have tested positive while the majority are out as a result of contact tracing requiring quarantine. Sources report that LSU has only T.J. Finley available at quarterback, no tight ends, no deep snappers, and are very thin at defensive back. It has been mentioned that the SEC will look into trying to reschedule the game, but I think it's highly unlikely with all bye week options for the season used up. Expect the game to be ruled a no contest leaving both LSU (2-3) and the Crimson Tide (6-0) with only a nine game schedule.
