2012 Georgia Football Schedule: Game Times Set For Missouri, Buffalo

The game times for the first two weeks of the season are set for the Georgia Bulldogs. Their second week showdown with new SEC member Missouri will be a prime time start.

The game against Missouri replaces one against Alabama. For the Tigers, it will be their first league game ever as a member of the Southeastern Conference.

Georgia will wrap up the month of September with home games against Florida Atlantic, Vanderbilt and Tennessee.

Georgia TE Aron White, Columbia Native, Talks About His Home Town

With the Georgia Bulldogs making a trip to new SEC member Missouri next season, senior TE Aron White, a native of Columbia, had nothing but nice things to say about his home town:

"They’re both college towns, both centered around the university," White said. "That’s one of the reasons I came here is because there are so many similarities between the two, and I felt like I was in a little Columbia when I came out here."

"If Columbia is more big-time than Athens, then Stanford is more big-time than Faurot," White said. "I love Faurot Field. I loved buying a general admission ticket and sitting on the hill. They’ve done a lot for their program over the last 10 years as far as building it up and making their facilities top-notch."

And while the rabid fan bases as well as the huge lineman of the SEC may surprise the Tigers, their wide-open Big 12 spread offense will be a culture shock as well:

"The SEC is known for its speed and its size. With that speed, I think that up front in the trenches is where they’re going to have to have the biggest adjustment, because I don’t think they’re gonna see a lot of guys that are running 4.6es that are 300 pounds," White said. "But at the same time it’s gonna be an adjustment for us because they’re gonna spread it out, they’re gonna sling it, that’s what they do."

2012 Georgia Football Schedule: Alabama Swap Makes History For Dawgs

Georgia's most notable schedule modification for the 2012 slate - dropping a road game at BCS Championship contender Alabama for 7-6 newcomer Missouri - is being met with a chorus of derision from critics who point out the Bulldogs' history of lucky breaks:

Alligatorarmy_normalMT @TomahawkNation: By the end of 2012, UGA will have played 22 consecutive regular season SEC games without facing Arkansas, Bama or LSU@AlligatorArmy via Twitter

Instead of potentially dropping a home game with Ole Miss, the Dawgs surrendered a road trip to Alabama to help Missouri open their SEC era in Columbia, Missouri. That move alone gives UGA the easiest of the 14 SEC schedules in 2012, according to SB Nation's college football analyst Bill C.

That's not sitting well in Columbia, South Carolina, considering the Gamecocks came up a game short in the Eastern Division standings this season despite beating Georgia in September. Aside from the seemingly beneficial Mizzou/Bama swap, the biggest change on the Dawgs' slate is a midseason meeting with those Gamecocks: Traditionally played the second Saturday of October, the UGA/USC game is moving to October 6.

2012 Georgia Football Schedule: Dawgs Drop Alabama To Visit Missouri

The SEC officially unveiled their expansion-modified 2012 football schedule this morning, and the biggest changes for the University of Georgia might bolster their chances at repeating as SEC Eastern Division Champions.

The Bulldogs will trade SEC West opponent Alabama for another game against the SEC East in newcomer Missouri. Georgia will be the Tigers' first official conference game in Columbia September 8. The Dawgs will play their usual slate of Eastern opponents (hosting Vandy and Tennessee, at South Carolina and Kentucky, playing Florida in Jacksonville) and will retain Ole Miss as scheduled:

Sept. 8: at Missouri

Sept. 22: VANDERBILT

Sept. 29: TENNESSEE

Oct. 6: at South Carolina

Oct. 20: at Kentucky

Oct. 27: vs. Florida (Jacksonville)

Nov. 3: OLE MISS

Nov. 10: at Auburn

Likely 2012 UGA Football Schedule, If Alabama And South Carolina Moves Happen

It's been murmured for some time now that the Georgia Bulldogs will both duck the Alabama Crimson Tide for the Missouri Tigers and get the South Carolina Gamecocks game budged to October, all of which should delight any Dawgs fan, trouble South Carolina fans and annoy just about everybody else. After winning the SEC East with one of the easiest schedules any SEC Championship Game participant has ever put together, UGA could have an even easier slate in 2012.

Nothing's official yet, as conference schedules may be delayed yet another day, but Seth Emerson of the Macon Telegraph puts it all together, and comes up with a very plausible 2012 schedule:

  • Sept. 1: Buffalo
  • Sept. 8: at Missouri
  • Sept. 15: Florida Atlantic
  • Sept. 22: Vanderbilt
  • Sept. 29: Tennessee
  • Oct. 6: at South Carolina
  • Oct. 13: at Kentucky
  • Oct. 20: Open
  • Oct. 27: vs. Florida in Jacksonville
  • Nov. 3: Ole Miss
  • Nov. 10: at Auburn
  • Nov. 17: Georgia Southern
  • Nov. 24: Georgia Tech

Considering the Auburn Tigers' losses, count as Georgia's toughest opponents Mizzou, Vandy, South Carolina likely minus Alshon Jeffery, the Florida Gators with who-knows-who at offensive coordinator, and a Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets team that will be preceded by a nearly identical warmup team. Masterful.

2012 SEC Football Schedule Leaks: Georgia-Alabama Off, South Carolina To October

The Georgia Bulldogs won't play the Alabama Crimson Tide next year, replacing them with the newcomer Missouri Tigers, ESPN's Chris Low reports along with various other nuggets. In addition, UGA's game against the South Carolina Gamecocks -- traditionally the SEC opener for each -- will reportedly be bumped to October.

Both adjustments had been expected, and have already proven quite unpopular with South Carolina fans, who prize the game's customary slot in the SEC schedule.

South Carolina fans are understandably incensed that the Dawgs, fresh off the easiest SEC schedule in modern memory, somehow managed to twist the expansion process to produce an even easier schedule in 2012.

That would leave the Dawgs with the Mississippi Rebels as their West opponent, besides protected rival Auburn. Looks like two straight years of agreeable scheduling for the Dawgs, if all reports are accurate, as Georgia would both get to prep for South Carolina and miss playing Bama.
