SEC commissioner Greg Sankey released a statement regarding the LSU-Florida postponement Monday afternoon.
“The presidents and athletic directors from Florida and LSU agreed on Thursday that the schools and SEC Office would make every effort to find a scheduling solution to their postponed game,” Sankey said in the statement. “As I have said, we need to play the game and we need to have people come together to find a way to make that happen. We continue to work with the universities to play this game.”
The game between the Tigers and Gators was originally scheduled for last Saturday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. But because of concerns over Hurricane Matthew near Gainesville, Fla., the contest was postponed.
Earlier Monday, Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley issued a statement regarding the postponement, reiterating his desire to reschedule the game.
