The Southeastern Conference has taken a hit this week due to COVID-19 and though the Arkansas Razorback game at Florida is still on, their first-year Head Coach will not be there.

Sam Pittman tested positive for COVID-19 one day after the Razorbacks beat Tennessee in Fayetteville. Reports so far indicate Pittman has not shown symptoms of the virus and is taking part in meetings while quarantining at home. Barry Odom, in his first year as Hogs Defensive Coordinator after having spent the last few seasons as Head Coach at Missouri, will be in charge of the team during Pittman’s Absence.

Three games in the SEC have been called off due to COVID-19 Concerns this weekend including Alabama’s Game at LSU along with Texas A & M at Tennessee and Auburn at Mississippi State.
