(CBS SPORTS) - LSU and Florida will apparently have their game day.

LSU and Florida have reportedly come to an agreement on a makeup date for their game that was postponed on Oct. 8 by Hurricane Matthew.

The schools made the announcement official Thursday afternoon.

The SEC Commissioner's Regulations requires each football team play all eight conference games in a season in order to be eligible to compete for a divisional title and play in the SEC Championship Game. Had the game not been rescheduled, Florida and LSU would have been ineligible to compete for the SEC title this season.
