Whether or not the postponed game between LSU and Florida will be played remains up in the air, but Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart hinted at a possible resolution soon.
Hart told 247Sports that he’s almost certain the game will be played at some point.
“Through my conversations with our commissioner, and the SEC office,” Hart told 247Sports, “I remain very confident that that game will be played, the LSU-Florida game.”
One date that continues to be looked at is Nov. 19 when LSU plays South Alabama and Florida plays Presbyterian. The two teams could buy out their opponents in order to play a game on that date. Georgia and South Carolina moved their game to Sunday because of Hurricane Matthew.
SEC commissioner Greg Sankey appeared via phone call during Tennessee’s game against Texas A&M on Saturday and said the game needs to be played. Hart went on to say that the bylaws about postponed games should be re-examined.
“It’s time we find a far more suitable way and means to determine what happens if a game or multiple games should be lost for circumstances beyond everyone’s control.
“We have to find a better solution to determining divisional winners.”
