Reports indicate that the Georgia Bulldogs will face the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the first round of the 2010 Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Florida. Dawgwithabone posted this today on the DawgPost.com Hoop Dawgs message board.
Dawgwithbone’s post references a We Are Notre Dame blog post from July 1. The post states that the game was confirmed by Tom Noie of the South Bend Tribune via his Twitter page. Here are Noie’s tweets from June 25th:
The irish will open tournament play Thanksgiving night against Georgia at the Milk House in Orlando.

Should the brackets hold true without any upsets, #NotreDame also would play California and Temple.

That means #NotreDame non-league schedule is Georgia, Cal, Temple, Kentucky and Gonzaga. Enough to silence critics? Probably not.

The bracket for the Classic has not been released yet on the tournament’s official website, nor has any matchup been confirmed.
Earlier this month, news broke that the Dawgs will host the Xavier Musketeers at Stegeman in February 2011. Other known non-conference games include Saint Louis, UAB and at Georgia Tech (12/07/2010).
The 2010-11 schedule apparently lacks one game for completion, according to three recent posts by UGA’s Kent Davison on the Basketball Traveler’s message board.
