Georgia adds Indiana State to 2023 football schedule
The Georgia Bulldogs have added another Football Championship Subdivision opponent to their future football schedules.
Georgia will welcome the Indiana State Sycamores to Sanford Stadium in Athens on a date to be determined in 2023, I reported earlier today over at FBSchedules.com.
The two schools signed a Binding Memorandum of Understanding for the game back in late 2016 and then an amendment in late 2017. The amendment states that the two schools will agree to finalize a specific date for the game by May 1, 2018.
Georgia will pay Indiana State a $500,000 guarantee for playing the game, per the copy of the Binding Memorandum of Understanding.
Indiana State competes in the Missouri Valley Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Sycamores and Bulldogs have never met on the gridiron.
The Sycamores join a road game at Georgia Tech on the non-conference schedule for Georgia in 2023. The Bulldogs need two more opponents to complete their schedule that season.
Per the SEC schedule rotation, Georgia will host Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina, and Ole Miss and travel to Auburn, Florida (in Jacksonville), Tennessee, and Vanderbilt in 2023.
The 2018 G-Day game is set for Saturday, April 21 at 4:00pm ET. Georgia opens the 2018 season on Saturday, Sept. 1 against the Austin Peay Governors.
