Due to Hurricane Delta impacting the Baton Rouge area, Mizzou and LSU will play in Columbia at 11 a.m.
COLUMBIA, Mo. – Due to Hurricane Delta threatening the Baton Rouge, La., area this weekend, Mizzou Athletics and LSU Athletics have agreed to move Saturday’s game between the two schools to Mizzou’s Memorial Stadium in Columbia, Mo. The game between Mizzou and the reigning national champion LSU Tigers will kick at 11 a.m. on an ESPN platform to be announced, and marks LSU’s first-ever appearance at Memorial Stadium.
“Due to the pending impact of Hurricane Delta on Louisiana and the surrounding area, it is in the best interest for the safety of everyone involved to move the game to Columbia,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said. “It was critical to relocate the game to an SEC campus where SEC COVID-19 management protocols are in place and readily applied. I appreciate the cooperation of the schools who are working closely to make the appropriate operational adjustments in order to prioritize the health and safety of our student-athletes while accommodating this change in the schedule.”
While Mizzou is now hosting this game, it is considered an LSU home game. That said, this game was not included in the original season ticket plan and Mizzou Athletics is providing donors and season ticket holders the priority opportunity to purchase their 2020 relocated seats for this game.
“We have been working with the SEC and LSU since Monday when it became apparent that Hurricane Delta could disrupt this weekend’s game, and made it known that we would be glad to host the game if it would help out LSU and the Baton Rouge community,” said Mizzou Director of Athletics Jim Sterk. “While both Mizzou and LSU shared a common open date next month, getting the game played on its scheduled date was important because of the week to week uncertainty surrounding potential COVID-19 disruptions down the road. Our thoughts during this difficult time are with all of those in Louisiana and throughout the Gulf region as they prepare for Hurricane Delta in the upcoming days.”
To purchase seats, Mizzou season ticket holders can go to their MyMizzou account, where their tickets have already been preloaded with an invoice available to claim their tickets. Tickets must be reserved by Thursday, Oct. 8, at 2 p.m., as tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday, Oct. 9, at 9 a.m. Any tickets not purchased by Thursday’s deadline will be included in Friday’s public sale.
Parking passes will also be loaded onto Mizzou ticket accounts after season ticket holders have purchased single-game tickets. Parking will be managed in fans’ MyMizzou Accounts, as well as the Mizzou Tigers app, along with game tickets. Parking lots will open at 8:00 a.m. Tailgating is prohibited and all 2020 parking policies will remain in effect. A complete list of reserved parking lots and policies can be found at www.MizzouGameday.com.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and time constraints, season ticket holders must purchase the same number of seats that they have been allocated for this season. For example, if a fan has four seats, that fan must purchase all four seats, not two or six.
