Georgia And Ohio State Cancel Football Series Scheduled For 2020

Blame this one on the never-ending dynamics of realignment: due to the new Pac-12 / Big 10 agreement to play regular season games against member schools, the agreement between Ohio State and Georgia to play a two-game series starting in 2020 is now off.

"The bottom line, they said they couldn’t play," Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity told the Athens Banner-Herald. "I’m not upset."

That's not to blame the Buckeyes, entirely - as news swirls that the SEC might adopt another conference game, many future non-conference series could be at stake. The Big 10 / Pac-12 agreement would go into place in 2017, creating concern that Ohio State would play Georgia, a Pac-12 team and an entire Big 10 slate in a single season. If Georgia has a nine-game SEC schedule ahead of them, plus an annual series with in-state rival Georgia Tech, they might develop similar concerns.
