Georgia Bulldogs announce 2012 Football Schedule

Georgia BulldogsThe Georgia Bulldogs have officially announced their 2012 football schedule. UGA will open the season at home on September 1 against the Buffalo Bulls.

On September 8, Georgia travels to face new SEC member Missouri. The Tigers are leaving the Big 12 and officially joins the SEC on July 1, 2012. The two schools’ only meeting came in the 1960 Orange Bowl which Georgia won 14-0.

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 usually started the first or second week of October since 1996.

The Dawgs then hit the road for two games, at South Carolina on October 6 and at Kentucky on October 20. Georgia was slated to travel to Alabama on Oct. 6, but the addition of Missouri pushed the Crimson Tide off of the schedule.

Missouri also pushed the Gamecocks down Georgia’s schedule to an unusual position. For the first time since 1998, the Gamecocks will not be Georgia’s first SEC opponent on the schedule.

Initially, Georgia was to have their open date on Oct. 20 preceding the Florida game in Jacksonville. The bye week now falls on Oct. 13 between the trips to Columbia and Lexington. The annual game against the Gators is scheduled for Oct. 27.

Georgia then returns home to host Ole Miss on November 3. The Rebels will then rotate off of the schedule for at least five years.

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