Georgia’s Future Non-conference Opponents and Guarantees through 2016

UGAWith the recent deal to pay ULM a school-record $1.2 million, we thought we would take a look at Georgia’s upcoming non-conference opponents and the guarantee for each.

When Director of Athletics Greg McGarity was hired from Florida in August of 2010, he brought with him their scheduling philosophy. That philosophy is to play a non-conference schedule consisting of one BCS conference team, two middle to lower level FBS teams and one FCS team.

McGarity immediately cancelled the 2015-16 series with Oregon, and later cancelled the Louisville series in order to play Boise State in 2011. Games that he has scheduled include Charleston Southern, Georgia Southern, Florida Atlantic, South Alabama, Southern and ULM.

McGarity also signed a memorandum of understanding to play Ohio State in 2020 and 2021.

Since Georgia Tech is on the schedule each year, the Dawgs won’t schedule many BCS conference teams except every five years or so. The exception will be 2013-14 since Clemson was already on the books.

Listed below are Georgia’s non-conference football opponent’s and the guarantee for each. UGA will receive $1.7 million for playing Boise State and $300,000 for playing at Clemson. Also, Georgia paid Appalachian State an additional $75,000 for moving the game from 2009 to 2013.
