Georgia sets tentative 2013 and 2014 Football Schedules

UGAThe Georgia Bulldogs have set their tentative 2013 and 2014 football schedules, has learned exclusively via a document obtained from UGA.

Just like the 2012 schedule we posted last week, the 2013 and 2014 schedules depart from the format the Dawgs’ have seen over the past few years.

Georgia opens the 2013 season on the road against the Clemson Tigers on August 31. Then, for the first time since 1991, the Dawgs open SEC play against a team other than South Carolina. On September 7, Georgia will travel to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt in their earliest meeting ever.

The Bulldogs then host South Carolina (Sept. 14) followed by North Texas (Sept. 21). Next, Georgia hits the road for back-to-back road games at LSU (Sept. 28) and Tennessee (Oct. 5). LSU is back on the schedule for the first time since the 2008-09 rotation.

On October 12, the Alabama Crimson Tide visit Athens for the first time since they embarrassed the Dawgs 41-30 in 2008. After an open date, the Bulldogs host Kentucky (Oct. 26) before heading to Jacksonville to face the Florida Gators (Nov. 2).

Appalachian State visits Athens on Nov. 9 followed by the Auburn Tigers on Nov. 16. Georgia gets their second open date of the season on Nov. 23, which is strategically placed prior to their final regular-season game at Georgia Tech on Nov. 30.

Georgia kicks off the 2014 season at home on Aug. 30 against the Clemson Tigers. This is the final game of the 2013-14 home-and-home series that was signed way back in 2005.

On Sept. 6, the Bulldogs open the SEC schedule at the Arkansas Razorbacks. This will be the first time these two schools have been matched up to start conference play. The following week, UGA travels to play South Carolina.

After the first of two open dates, the Bulldogs play three straight conference games in Athens: Vanderbilt (Sept. 27), Tennessee (Oct. 4) and LSU (Oct. 11).

After their second open date (Oct. 18), the Bulldogs travel to face Kentucky (Oct. 25) and then head to Jacksonville for the Cocktail party against Florida (Nov. 1).

On Nov. 8, Georgia hosts the South Alabama Jaguars. USA is currently playing in the FCS but will become a full member of the Sun Belt Conference in 2013.

UGA travels to face Auburn on Nov. 15 before closing out the 2014 season with back-to-back home games against Charleston Southern (Nov. 22) and Georgia Tech (Nov. 29).

As with all future schedules, these dates are tentative and subject to change until officially announced by the SEC.

Update (12/01/2011): Due to the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC, Georgia’s 2013 and 2014 schedules will change. Therefore, all SEC games have been removed from the schedules and are now listed as TBA.
