LSU football will play its matchup with Missouri in Columbia as Louisiana braces for Hurricane Delta.

"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.

The game will kickoff at 11 a.m. and air on the ESPN family of networks. The game will be LSU's first at Faurot Field. The two teams have only met two other times, most recently in 2016.

"While we are disappointed to not play in Tiger Stadium this weekend, Hurricane Delta's current path and the need to play in a venue with SEC COVID-19 protocols in place made this change an absolute necessity," said LSU athletic director Scott Woodward. "I want to thank Missouri Athletic Director Jim Sterk for accommodating this on such short notice and Commissioner Sankey for his continued leadership of our conference. I also want to thank those in other cities and venues who reached out to assist, including Shreveport Mayor Adrian Perkins and his staff. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those in the path of this dangerous storm. Be safe."
