BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (February 15, 2021) – The Southeastern Conference has announced a revised schedule of men's basketball games due to the icy weather that is moving throughout the region this week.

That includes the LSU at Ole Miss game originally scheduled for Wednesday night in Oxford, will now be played at The Pavilion at Ole Miss on Thursday at 4 p.m. CT and will be telecast on the SEC Network and broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network.

LSU's opponent on Saturday in Baton Rouge, Auburn, will also play on Thursday at the same time, hosting Mississippi State.

In addition, the South Carolina at Tennessee game originally scheduled for Tuesday has been changed to Wednesday as a result of a combination of a positive test, contact tracing and subsequent quarantining of individuals within the Tennessee basketball program, consistent with Southeastern Conference COVID-19 management requirements.

The SEC's COVID-19 management requirements, as developed by the SEC's Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force, are available on SECsports.com.

The complete mid-week schedule:

Tuesday, February 16
*#20 Missouri at Georgia/SEC Network/6:00 pm CT (moves from 5:30 start time)
*Florida at #24 Arkansas/ESPN2 /6:00 pm CT (no changes)

Wednesday, February 17
*Kentucky at Vanderbilt/SEC Network/6:00 pm CT (no changes)
*South Carolina at #19 Tennessee/SEC Network/8:00 pm CT (moves from Tuesday)

That's weird, they're not playing outside right? A little snow in Mississippi cancels games?

The game isn’t cancelled. It has been moved to a day where it will probably be more safe for people to be traveling.
