The game is tentatively set to be played December 12.
"This is not going to be normal, and everyone's going to have to be flexible if we're going to try to get a season in for everyone", Stricklin said.
The school's independent newspaper, The Alligator, reported 19 football players tested positive for the novel coronavirus, which has caused a global pandemic this year.
Florida's athletic director Scott Stricklin issued a statement on Tuesday about the uptick in case.
Another SEC game scheduled to be played Saturday, Missouri at Vanderbilt, also was postponed. The latest update on the team has at least 21 players with Covid-19, along with two coaches, and an unknown number of support staffers.
Stricklin said during his press conference Wednesday that the athletics department believes the trip to College Station played a part in the outbreak amongst the Florida football program.
The next time the Gators take the field, they will look to bounce back from a disappointing first loss and play much better defense.
During the SEC teleconference earlier in the day, coach Dan Mullen said two of his assistants have tested positive for COVID-19, but they are not reporting any symptoms. Now, LSU has a game postponed altogether.
Mullen, after losing at Texas A&M last weekend, said the crowd had an impact on the game and that he would like to see 100% capacity at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, citing a recent decision by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to lift COVID-19 restrictions that had limited the size of public gatherings.
The Gators were scheduled to host LSU Saturday, and then Missouri on October 24 prior to UF's bye week.
Stricklin said the players have mild symptoms or are asymptomatic.
Stricklin was asked Wednesday afternoon following the postponement about Mullen's comments on Saturday and Monday.
"Well, it's hard to speculate right now", Stricklin said.
