It looks like Alabama football will gain a second bye week.

The matchup Crimson Tide fans were looking for has been postponed via the Southeastern Conference COVID Testing/Protocol.

News came from the SEC front office in Birmingham (Ala.) on Tuesday afternoon.

On Monday, Ed Orgeron of the LSU Tigers told reporters in his presser that a Coronavirus outbreak took place among his players on campus. In terms of what caused the situation, it was reported that a Halloween party was the culprit.

The Tigers are thin at various positions, including quarterback and defensive back. LSU was fighting and is still fighting to have the matchup, but it looks like it will be to no avail.

No date or time has been made available for the rescheduled game.
