Phil Steele, a popular college football pundit, has ranked UGA’s 2014 football schedule as the 35th toughest in the country.
Georgia, ranked 12th in the preseason Coaches Poll, opens the 2014 season at home vs. 16th-ranked Clemson. The Bulldogs also play non-conference contests against Troy, Charleston Southern, and Georgia Tech.
The Bulldogs open SEC play at South Carolina in Week 3. Later, Georgia travels to take on Missouri and Arkansas in back-to-back weeks, followed by the Cocktail Party game vs. Florida and a game at Kentucky.
SEC foes that will visit Sanford Stadium in 2014 include Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Auburn. The Auburn Tigers, 5th in the Coaches Poll, are the only conference opponent currently ranked.
The following SEC teams have schedules that are ranked tougher by Phil Steele: Tennessee (2), Arkansas (3), Auburn (5), Texas A&M (12), Kentucky (15), and Ole Miss (20).
