UPDATE: LSU-Alabama has been postponed.

The LSU-Alabama game on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium could be in jeopardy as the Tigers are dealing with a COVID-19 outbreak.

Head coach Ed Orgeron confirmed Monday that LSU is dealing with an outbreak and could have several players out on Saturday. He did not specify who or how many players could miss the game but suggested it includes potential starters.

Brody Miller with The Athletic reports that LSU only has one quarterback, freshman TJ Finley, available to play on Saturday and no tight ends or a long-snapper. Orgeron would not comment Monday when asked if Finley or Max Johnson were available vs. Alabama.

Another report from Ross Dellenger with Sports Illustrated says that the outbreak stems from a Halloween party last weekend.

Discussions between the schools and the SEC on whether to play Saturday's game have already begun, according to several sources.

If the game is not played on Saturday it will likely be canceled since LSU's only other open date (Dec. 12) is already filled with Florida.

I guess I will have to watch 2019 LSU GOAT beatdown of Blama if they cancel COVIDfest 2020 this weekend in Tiger Stadium. I can wait for the Clemson beatdown of Blama in January unless Blama gets COVID the week before.

1 QB, no TE's and other starters out I say we play it anyway. In combat when I was pinned down by the enemy with no hope for a miracle in sight or ear shot I fought on heavily out numbered. Man up LSU and go to battle. Show the nation you are Tigers and you dont back down. Forget all of these whiney people on here wanting the game to be cancelled

You’re comparing a ball game to war? I hate when people do this, the two are no where near the platform. Not to mention it’s insulting to the hero’s in our military to compare them to a bunch of pampered college kids.

What happens when you are 17 starters short from the previous season?

It's all fun to get get caught up in the moment (Last Year). But when the next year comes and you have written a check you can't cash, it isn't all that fun is it.

The gumps have never spent one day in LSU's shoes, so you have no idea what you are talking about... you can't even spell 15-0. We did something last year that you could only dream about. And bama never lost 17 starters from one season to the next, so again, know your place... now go back to satisfying your cousinsister.

SomeLSUguy obviously you don't know what your talking about. Bama has 11 total undefeated seasons and we lose many players every year and coaches for that matter. (We did something last year that you could only dream of). We've done 17 times just a few more times than LSU. Idiot obviously you just post articles and don't know anything about football.

I like all the comments on here, This isn't even a real season LOL!! If you were playing well we wouldn't see one post of that fashion. Every team that is playing is having to deal with the same thing. Man up! you were talking all that trash at midfield last year. This is our house!! and all that crap that Coach O was talking in the locker room. Now you can't back it up. Bama had to play with all freshman LB's last year because we had so many hurt players, along with Tua not being 100 pct. Man Up!!!

Lol. Halloween party! Undisciplined. Seems like deja vu from another incident resulting in the same thing. If they don’t care, really should just withdraw and cancel the season.

If we were undefeated we would find a way to play this game. Sucking this year is no excuse. Man up and play.

Listen to the experts. It would be irresponsible and dangerous to put lives at risk over a game. This game must be cancelled for safety.
Reply6 months
Talking all that smack last year, now you are in desperation mode trying to cancel the game, because you know whats coming. Has nothing to do with safety if it was last year you would be singing a different tune.

Win, lose, or draw man up suit up. It is what it is take the asswhoopins the same way we give em. Ain’t no running if you from da boot!
Reply6 months
The defining moment of champions is not what you do when times are good but how you react when the times are tough. Running will only make it worst. Man up suit up!
