Georgia to schedule Big Ten or Notre Dame?

UGA Athletics Director Greg McGarity confirmed to multiple sources that the Bulldogs are looking to schedule future football games with Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State or Notre Dame.

Back in November, McGarity told Roger Clarkson of the Athens Banner-Herald that “…if we were to schedule a home-and-home game with Ohio State, Michigan or a Notre Dame, a Penn State, that would be a great home-and-home series.”

Here is the full text of McGarity’s quote from that article:

“Someday, if we were to schedule a home-and-home game with Ohio State, Michigan or a Notre Dame, a Penn State, that would be a great home-and-home series,” McGarity said. “You’re playing an institution of high caliber and great tradition. In the long run, those are the types of home-and-home series we’d like to focus on.

“But we’d do that periodically. It’s got to be at the right time and against the right opponent that has the same rich tradition of college football as the University of Georgia.”

McGarity’s desire to schedule one of those teams in the future was confirmed this week by Dawgs247 and UGASports.com.

Georgia has openings on their future schedules, but more than likely won’t schedule any BCS teams until after the Clemson home-and-home series in 2013 and 2014.

McGarity gave no other specifics but did state that they are looking “way down the road.” Currently, the Bulldogs need one non-conference game in 2014, three in 2015 and two in 2016. No games are scheduled beyond 2016 except the annual game with Georgia Tech.
