Georgia Spices up Future Slate with Games vs. Clemson and Texas

The non-conference portion of Georgia’s future schedule just got a whole lot more interesting.

Georgia is adding home-and-home sets against Clemson and Texas according to Dawg Nation.

Georgia plays at Texas on Sept. 2, 2018. Texas travels to Georgia on Sept. 1, 2019.

Georgia heads to Clemson on Sept. 15, 2029. Clemson will make the trip to Georgia on Aug. 31, 2030.

Prior to the set against Clemson, the Bulldogs are facing the Tigers in 2024 from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Undefeated Clemson (10-0) has qualified for the College Football Playoff each of the last three years and are three wins away from guaranteeing a fourth straight berth.

Under coach Tom Herman, Texas (7-3) is No. 19 in the CFP rankings.

The last time Georgia and Clemson squared off was in 2014. The previous meeting between Georgia and Texas dates back to a 1984 game in the Cotton Bowl.

It’s possible Georgia could play either team this season, with Bulldogs and Tigers a potential CFP semifinal. DawgNation notes that for Georgia to play Texas this season in the Sugar Bowl, Texas would need to win the Big 12 and Georgia has to finish as the highest ranked SEC team to not make the CFP.

Georgia’s lone Power Five non-conference game this season is the annual rivalry vs. Georgia Tech, slated for Nov. 24 at noon EST. Since Georgia squares off with Georgia Tech every year in non-conference play, the Bulldogs will have three Power Five non-conference opponents in the 2029 season.

DawgNation also points out that the SEC might eventually install a nine-game conference schedule, which would result in Georgia playing 12 straight Power Five teams in the 2029 campaign.

Georgia’s other non-conference opponents in 2018 included Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee State and UMass.

Georgia hosts UMass this Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
