The 2013 Georgia Bulldogs G-Day Spring football game will be held on Saturday, April 6, UGA officially announced today. Spring practice begins on Saturday, March 2.

Television coverage for G-Day is to be announced. Last year, G-Day was broadcast by ESPN3 and on CSS (tape-delay).

The Masters Golf Tournament will be held April 11-14, so this will be the third straight year that G-Day and the Masters are on separate weekends. However, the NCAA Final Four, which is in Atlanta this year, will be played the same day as G-Day.

Moving the G-Day game away from the Masters was a tactical decision made by UGA athletics director Greg McGarity, who was hired in August 2010. This allows more fans to attend the game and provides extra media attention in Athens.

Georgia opens the 2013 season at the Clemson Tigers on Saturday, Aug. 31. The game is certain to be a matchup of Top 10 teams. The following week doesn’t get any easier as South Carolina, also likely to be around the Top 10, visits Athens.

Other home games for UGA in 2013 include North Texas, LSU, Missouri, Appalachian State, and Kentucky. The Dawgs travel to Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Auburn, and Georgia Tech and take on Florida in Jacksonville.
