Georgia Vs. Ohio State: Dawgs And Buckeyes Working To Schedule A Football Home-And-Home

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Tim Tucker reports the Georgia Bulldogs have established a “memorandum of understanding” to play the Ohio St. Buckeyes in 2020 and 2021. The Dawgs have been shopping for a while for a Midwestern power to play in the future, also speaking with the Michigan Wolverines, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Penn St. Nittany Lions.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said very few details are in place other than that the games are planned to occur in 2020 and 2021, that they’ll be arranged as a home-and-home set, and that each will be played in the first two weeks of the season.

The McGarity scheduling philosophy thus appears to be signing a big name season-opener every few years, having also inked the Boise St. Broncos for next year’s Chick Fil A Kickoff Game, but otherwise welcoming a long line of pastries into Sanford Stadium.

Playing the Buckeyes is going to be a big deal — it’ll give Ohio State a brief recruiting inroad into the Southeast, and will position Georgia alongside one of the national media’s favorite programs.
