Georgia Seeking To Schedule A Home-And-Home Series With Big 12 Team


Georgia has been in discussions with several Power 5 teams in hopes of upgrading the non-conference schedule.

Horns247 reports the Texas Longhorns and Bulldogs are working on a home-and-home football series.

The 23rd-ranked Longhorns of the Big 12 Conference have several Power 5 non-conference games scheduled for the next decade, so 2028 and 2029 would be the most likely dates.

Georgia’s future non-conference schedule is much more flexible. Besides the annual season-ending game with Georgia Tech, the Dawgs have Power 5 teams Notre Dame at home in 2019, Virginia in Atlanta in 2020, UCLA at the Rose Bowl in 2025 and the Bruins in Athens in 2026.

In addition, Georgia and Clemson have had discussions in scheduling a home-and-home series. Coach Smart and Clemson’s Dabo Swinney have both talked favorably about getting the long-time rivals back on the schedule.

Texas is 3-1 against Georgia, the last game being the Dawgs’ 10-9 victory over the No. 2 ranked Longhorns in the 1984 Cotton Bowl. The Longhorns were 7-6 in 2017 and beat Missouri in the Texas Bowl. Georgia won the SEC Conference and advanced to the national championship game. Besides the national coverage of this possible marquee matchup, the game provides additional exposure in Texas for UGA, a state the Dawgs have had considerable recruiting success.
