In a tweet, the SEC Network’s Cole Cubelic indicated that tomorrow’s game between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Georgia Bulldogs has been cancelled.

No official word yet from either school or the SEC, though this has seemed like a possibility since word started coming out earlier this week about opt-outs within the Vanderbilt football program. We’ve also known that all of the specialists were in the COVID-19 protocol last week and weren’t likely to be out of it this week, and perhaps that situation has gotten worse over the past week.

Vanderbilt was set to play its first game since Sunday’s firing of head coach Derek Mason and is 0-8 on the season. It’s now possible that Derek Mason’s final game — a 41-0 blowout loss at Missouri — will also be the final game of Vanderbilt’s 2020 football season, a season which most of us probably wanted to be over anyway. Now, can we get a new football coach already?

UPDATE: It’s official, though the SEC’s official release says “postponed” rather than “cancelled,” with a makeup date of December 19.
