    Georgia Adds Murray State to 2018 Schedule

    By Brian Wilmer -
    1. Current UGA Student
      April 21, 2016 at 6:39 pm

      So the non conference schedules look like this for the next few years:
      2016: vs. UNC (GA Dome), vs. Nichols State, vs. UL Lafayette, vs. Tech
      2017: vs. App State, at Notre Dame, vs. Samford, at Tech
      2018: TBA, vs. Murray State, vs. UMass, vs. Tech
      2019: TBA, vs. Notre Dame, TBA, at Tech

      Sounds like to me the scheduling plan is the annual game with Tech, another Power 5 opponent. and two “money games,” with one of those continuing to be the week before Thanksgiving rivals like the SEC has done in the past few years. With one spot open in 2018, which would appear to be the first week of the season, I wonder if that opens up for a neutral site kickoff game or the first part of a home and home that I would presume to take place in 2018 and 2020 or 2021. (Personally, I would like to see us play Clemson again and maybe a regional team like FSU in non-conference, however, 2018 does not look like a year where that could happen.)

        I agree with scheduling two money games and two power 5 schools each year.

        Florida St. has open dates in 2018, 2020, & 2021. Penn St. has openings in 2020 & 2021. We’ve waited late to schedule so most Power 5 schools are booked up already. Hope we don’t end up with three money games like 2015 which contributed to a 10-3 UGA being left unranked.

        I’m still stunned that Georgia is playing on the road at Georgia Tech *and* Notre Dame in the same year. Most P5 teams want 7 home games–for one to play two true road OOC games in a year is a real rarity, and I’m not sure why the South Bend game isn’t in 2018. Not a complaint–I’m neutral on Georgia–just an observation.

      Sorry, Jinzo & Rich. I am not a fan of SEC scheduling at all (3 money games, with one before the season finale, and very few schools scheduling Home and Home’s until the SEC mandated at least one Power 5 School last season)…….

      But Georgia has consistently scheduled 2 Power 5 OOC games a year and mostly those have been Home and Home’s.

      2006 – Colorado, GT
      2007- Oklahaoma State, @ GT
      2008 – GT, @ Arizona State
      2009 – @ Oklahoma State, Arizona State, @GT
      2010 – @ Colorado, GT
      2011 – Boise (Georgia Dome), GT
      2012 – GT
      2013- @ Clemson, GT (Appalachian State, too. Not Tennessee Tech, Citadel, )
      2014 – Clemson, GT
      2015 – GT

      8 out of 10 seasons they played 2 power Conference foes

        UGA is the only SEC team which has been scheduling two OOC games with P5 teams. It will be interesting to see if that changes with the new HC.

        In 2017 Florida will also have a second OOC game with a P5 team,

        I do hope the play off committee will start making an issue of teams playing less than10 regular season games with P5 teams.

      anti-SEC haters still have nothing to do. All they can do is write about is the OOC schedule.
      Yet the SEC tears up the top teams when it comes to bowl games.

        UGA/Gator hater is officially changing his name to small 10 hater. Bozo’s like Jinzo need to feel the hate in every post. All they do is hate on the SEC so lets return the hate. Michigan fan this hate is not aimed at you but for the other 13 can’t count members of the very small 10 you are free game. Auburn. LSU, Florida and Alabama have something that only one small 10(14) team has in the 2000’s so keep hating!

      April 20, 2016 at 7:37 pm

      What a shock that an SEC team schedules a powder puff. I would have more respect for Georgia if there was a return game at UMass (Gillette Stadium).

        I hate uga but did you look at who else they are playing?

        Georgia is also scheduled to host in-state rival Georgia Tech to close out the regular season on Nov. 24.

        In SEC play in 2018, Georgia is slated to host Auburn, Florida (at Jacksonville), Tennessee, and Vanderbilt and travel to Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, and South Carolina.

        Really? One game against UMass and you flip out? Find me a small 10(14) team with a tougher schedule

    4. Tully
      April 20, 2016 at 8:21 pm

      It will be interesting to see how UGA approaches OOC scheduling now with Kirby Smart ad HC. UGA has been the only SEC team which started to regularly scheduling two OOC games with P5 teams. GT is always on the schedule. In 2013 and 2014 UGA played Clemson. In 2016 UGA plays UNC, 2017 and 2019 ND UCLA is on the schedule for 2025 and 2026.

      I hope the Playoff Committee starts making playing only 9 regular season games with P5 teams an issue.The committee made the Big 12 not having a CCG in 2014 an issue and even though UNC played 10 regular season games with P5 teams the fact UNC played 2 games with FCS teams was an issue.

      April 21, 2016 at 12:33 am

      Small 10 it takes 2 to schedule… call Auburn, Tennessee, LSU Texas A&M. They are scheduling ACC and Pac 12 teams. Who is afraid of who? Other then Michigan & Wisconsin no Small 10 teams seem to be scheduling SEC teams. Haters like to hate

      So Georgia will be playing @GT and @UCLA in 2015. It doesn’t make sense.

      But Georgia cancelling the home-and-home series with Oregon didn’t make sense either.

      Crabbes , It makes perfect sense….. Georgia had no shot in hell at beating Oregon either game.That;s whay it was cancelled. Ucla will punch them in the throat both games… Just like they did Bama in 1999 and 2000 home and away….

      In the old days, this would have meant a days-long train journey for the DAWGS.
      UCLA would have played ag’in’ a half asleep Georgia team (and, possibly…only possibly) won the contest, because of it.
      It doesn’t make sense to go cross-country, to play a non-bowl game, though.

      Georgia continues to be one of the few SEC schools that is willing to stretch their OCC schedule. Pat-on-the-back to the Bulldogs once again for leading the way. There are another 9-10 schools in the SEC that could take a lesson or two from what Georgia is doing and has done. Nice Job Dawgs!

    4. Bob Gibson
      February 19, 2015 at 5:22 pm

      Different matchup. Now if Georgia would start playing some more of these games outside of the region, something they haven’t done since 2011 and something they are not scheduled to do again until 2017.

    5. Joe
      February 21, 2015 at 2:01 pm

      I think it’s funny that people slam the SEC for their out of conference schedule, which they schedule pretty much exactly like everyone else has done (1 quality opponent, 2 FBS teams from non-Power Five conferences, and 1 FCS)… but now you have a team in the SEC scheduling TWO games against Power Five teams and people want them to go out of the region. Look, the south is full of great teams. You don’t have to go far to play someone good. It’s not the west coast or midwest where you really have to leave your region to play someone good. if you threw out the conference requirements, the Dawgs could play 12 of the best teams in the country and not get past one state away from Georgia.

      • Mike Pike
        February 23, 2015 at 6:37 pm

        Except there is plenty of reason to slam it. When you don’t play teams on the road and in most cases schedule 4 cupcake games, you should get slammed. There is another article on this site that basically calls them out on those schedules, as the SEC has 4 schools (more than any other Power 5 conference) that will not play a Power 5 school out of conference this year, Missouri, Ole Miss, Miss. State, and Vanderbilt. It’s made worse by the fact that the conference as a whole will only play 7 true road games and 2 of those are by Vanderbilt.

      • Evan
        February 24, 2015 at 12:18 pm

        And UNC is a lower-half team in the ACC, so how are they as good as FSU, Ore, OH St or any top p5 program? They were just as good as SDSU, who finished 7-5 in the MWC, and lost by 30 to ECU, who finished 8-4 in the AAC. This doesn’t really qualify as a P5 game.

    6. Darrell
      February 23, 2015 at 4:59 pm

      Nice match-up! SEC non-conference schedules would be comparable to other P5’s if they would play more home & home OOC games but they continue to schedule 7 to 8 home games each season and that is what gives them the edge.
