The start of Florida basketball’s Southeastern Conference schedule against the Ole Miss Rebels back on Dec. 29 was postponed due to an outbreak of COVID on the Gators’ squad. On Monday, the SEC announced a makeup date for the two teams to finish unsettled business.
The game has been rescheduled for Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. EST in Oxford, Mississippi, according to the university. By making up the game, the conference ensures that all 14 SEC teams compete in a full 18 conference games with a balance of home and away games this season. The matchup is snuggled between a Jan. 22 home game against the Vanderbilt Commodores and a road game against the Tennessee Volunteers on Jan. 26, making for a tight three-game stretch for the team.
