Georgia Southern vs. Georgia: Kickoff set for 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 17

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The UGA game against Georgia Southerrn will start at 1:30 p.m.

Georgia Bulldogs games are normally scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff, but it's going to play differently on Nov. 17. While television broadcast rights are still being negotiated, the Dawgs will face FCS Georgia Southern on Nov. 17 at 1:30 p.m.

The game falls into the one game pay-per-view or point-to-point telecast provisions outlined by the SEC. Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity had this to say, courtesy of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"We felt the 1:30 p.m. kickoff would give the fans the best timetable for tailgating opportunities before the game and will provide ample time to return home following the game."

The AJC report said if the Georgia Southern game does in fact get picked up for TV, there is a chance every Georgia game could be televised this season. The Bulldogs are still awaiting word on broadcast plans for their game at Kentucky next week. The Oct. 27 Florida game is already set to be broadcast on CBS.
