The Georgia Bulldogs have added the Florida Atlantic Owls to their 2012 football schedule, the Athens Banner Herald has reported. The game will be played in Athens on September 15, 2012.
This will be the first ever meeting between UGA and FAU, a member of the Sun Belt Conference. The Owls are currently coached by Howard Schnellenberger. Georgia head coach Mark Richt played for Schnellenberger at Miami (FL) from 1979 to 1982.
Georgia’s 2012 football schedule is now complete. The Dawgs’ non-conference schedule includes Buffalo, Florida Atlantic, Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech.
FAU, who is now scheduled to travel to Georgia and Navy, needs two more non-conference games to fill out their 2012 schedule.
