In a refreshing change from the ‘Big Home Game In A NFL Dome/Ireland/England/France (you wait! It’s coming!)’, Georgia and Notre Dame have agreed one of the biggest home-and-homes in their history.
The matches will be played at Notre Dame on September 9th, 2017 and in Athens on September 21st, 2019.
“This series will generate an overwhelming level of excitement for our student-athletes and supporters,” said Georgia AD Greg McGarity. “We have a tremendous amount of respect for Notre Dame and look forward to the start of this memorable experience.”
The two teams have met only once before — in the 1981 Sugar Bowl–a 17-10 Georgia victory that capped an undefeated, untied season and secured a consensus national championship.
“Playing Notre Dame will be an honor and a great challenge for us,” said UGA head coach Mark Richt. “I have a lot of respect for the job Coach Kelly is doing there and I’m sure college football fans across the country will enjoy watching our two teams compete.”
After Notre Dame’s awesome game at Tennessee in 2005 the last time they played a home-and-home against a SEC school, we can’t wait.
