The Georgia Bulldogs will host the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in 2018, according to an announcement by the school on Wednesday.

Georgia will welcome Middle Tennessee to Sanford Stadium in Athens on Sept. 15, 2018. The game will be only the second-ever meeting between the two schools following a 29-10 UGA win in Athens in 2003.

Middle Tennessee is a member of Conference USA. They are currently 8-4 this season and will take on Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve.

The addition of Middle Tennessee gives Georgia their fourth and final non-conference opponent for the 2018 season, barring a schedule change.

In 2015, the Blue Raiders finished 7-6 overall but fell to Western Michigan 45-31 in the Popeyes Bahamas Bowl.

Georgia was previously scheduled to host Murray State on Sept. 15, so that game will likely be moved to another date that season. The Bulldogs are also scheduled to host UMass on Nov. 24 and in-state rival Georgia Tech on Nov. 24.

In SEC play in 2018, Georgia is scheduled to host Auburn, Florida (in Jacksonville), Tennessee, and Vanderbilt and travel to Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, and South Carolina.

    Murray St, UMass, and Mid Tenn? Riveting season. I guess.

    Not exactly a strong group for out of conference games. They schedule those games so far in advance that I guess they couldn’t find a bigger name. Maybe they’ll play an add on game like they did North Carolina and schedule it to begin the season.

      On the other hand, after witnessing the Nicholls St game, maybe we should be careful what we wish for ;)
