Vanderbilt’s game at Georgia off due to lack of players

Vanderbilt doesn’t have enough available players to face Georgia as scheduled on Saturday, the school announced.

Instead, the game was scheduled to be played Dec. 19 in Athens, Ga. — provided the Bulldogs aren’t competing in the Southeastern Conference championship game that day.

Vanderbilt said the lack of available players is due to COVID-19, injuries and player opt-outs.

Saturday’s game was to be the first under interim coach Todd Fitch, who took over after the firing of Derek Mason on Sunday.

The Commodores (0-8) never have finished a season without a win in the history of the program, which dates to 1902. An earlier game against Tennessee was postponed and could be made up, but that has not been scheduled.

Should Georgia go on to qualify for the SEC title game, the Vanderbilt game will be declared a no-contest by the conference.
