KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Knox County Health Department said the Southeastern Conference’s plan to limit football games to in-conference only could help limit the potential for the spread of COVID-19.

With fewer teams coming from far away locations, Dr. Martha Buchanan said the plan can help “minimize risk.”

The SEC announced the plan on Thursday. There will be 10 in-conference only games during the regular season starting September 26 with the SEC Championship game set for December 19.
