The status of Saturday's Tennessee-Florida game, along with the other eight games involving Southeastern Conference schools, is still up in the air as of Tuesday afternoon after the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C.
SEC Commissioner Roy Kramer will conduct a conference call Wednesday afternoon to discuss the status of these games with the league's 12 athletic directors, including Tennessee's Doug Dickey and Florida's Jeremy Foley.
Foley canceled Tuesday's volleyball match between the Lady Gators and Florida State and said the tragedy transcends athletic competition.
"Obviously, when we are talking about situations such as what occurred in this country today, football games become pretty insignificant," he said, adding that he thought if a decision was made it would be on a national scale, not an individual basis.
"There has been no decision made as to the football game on Saturday. It is a situation that we will continue to monitor ... I know (SEC) Commissioner (Roy) Kramer has a conference call with all the commissioners around the country. I know he's had conver
sations with the NCAA. We'll wait and see."
Saturday's SEC schedule includes Southern Miss at Alabama, North Texas at Arkansas, Auburn at LSU, Houston at Georgia, Kentucky at Indiana, Vanderbilt at Mississippi, Brigham Young at Mississippi State, Bowling Green at South Carolina and th
e 3:30 kickoff between the No. 2 Gators and No. 8 Volunteers.
Status of this weekend's SEC football games is unknown
