College football COVID-19 updates: No. 6 Texas A&M’s home game against Mississippi postponed

Week 12 in college football is already being impacted by COVID-19 and Monday isn't even complete.

The SEC announced Saturday's game between No. 6 Texas A&M and Mississippi has been postponed due to ongoing health issues within the A&M program. The Aggies, who were supposed to host the Rebels, also had their game last week at Tennessee postponed. That matchup is expected to be played Dec. 12.

It's possible Texas A&M and Ole Miss could play on Dec. 19 if neither team is in the SEC championship game.

The announcement by the SEC comes after a weekend where four out of seven scheduled conference games were postponed. Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Missouri, Auburn and Mississippi State also lost games.

Florida, Kentucky and Vanderbilt have also previously had games postponed or reshuffled around their schedules because of COVID-19 postponements. 

The game is the fifth adjustment to the college football schedule this week and the 30th game affected in November.

Arizona State still on hold

Arizona State's game against Colorado scheduled for Saturday at Folsom Field in Boulder has been canceled, the second consecutive game the Sun Devils will miss due to positive COVID-19 tests.

The Pac-12 announced cancellation of the game due to Arizona State not having enough scholarship players available to meet the conference's 53-player minimum.
