Georgia Bulldogs publish 2012 Football Schedule

The Georgia Bulldogs have published their 2012 football schedule in their 2011 Football Media Guide. UGA will open the season at home on September 1 against Buffalo.

Georgia will travel to face South Carolina the second week of the season (Sept. 8). The Gamecocks have been the first SEC opponent on the schedule since 1998. More often than not, the game is played the second week of the season.

After a home game against Florida Atlantic on September 15, the Bulldogs host Vanderbilt (Sept. 22) and Tennessee (Sept. 29). This is a departure from the normal scheduling format as the Dawgs usually face Tennessee first followed by Vandy. Also, these two games have started the first or second week of October since 1996.

The Dawgs then hit the road for two straight weeks, at Alabama on October 6 and at Kentucky on October 13. The Crimson Tide rotate back onto the schedule for the first time since 2007-08.

For the second straight season, Georgia will have an off week prior to their game against the Florida Gators in Jacksonville. Florida is 15-4 against the Dawgs after an off week, while Georgia is 3-3 when they are off. Both teams are off before the 2011 Cocktail Party, which is a first in the series.

Georgia then returns home to host Ole Miss on Nov. 3. The Rebels will then rotate off of the schedule until probably 2016.

The final 2012 road game for UGA is Nov. 10 at Auburn. The Dawgs close out the regular season with consecutive home games against Georgia Southern (Nov. 17) and Georgia Tech (Nov. 24).

Update (12/01/2011): Due to the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC, Georgia’s 2012 football schedule will change. Therefore, all SEC games have been removed from the schedule and are now listed as TBA.
