The Georgia Bulldogs have added UAB, UMass, and three FCS opponents to their future football schedules, the Athens Banner-Herald has reported.

The UAB Blazers will travel to take on the Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium in Athens on Sept. 23, 2023. The Bulldogs will pay the Blazers a $1.9 million guarantee for the contest.

Georgia and UAB are also scheduled to meet in Athens on Sept. 11, 2021, which was previously announced.

The UMass Minutemen will return to Sanford Stadium on Nov. 23, 2024, and they will receive the same guarantee of $1.9 million. Georgia hosted UMass last season and defeated the Minutemen 66-27.

Georgia has also added home games against three Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) opponents. The Bulldogs will host the Charleston Southern Buccaneers on Nov. 20, 2021, the Samford Bulldogs on Sept. 10, 2022, and the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles on Sept. 7, 2024.

UGA will pay $500,000 guarantees to both Charleston Southern and Samford and a $550,000 guarantee to Tennessee Tech.

With the addition of these five games, Georgia’s non-conference schedules for 2021, 2022, and 2024 are now complete.

Georgia’s 2021 schedule opens at home against the San Jose State Spartans on Sept. 4, one week before UAB comes to town. The Bulldogs then host Charleston Southern before closing the regular-season at Georgia Tech on Nov. 27.

The 2022 season begins on Sept. 3 in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff against the Oregon Ducks at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Two weeks after a visit from Samford, Georgia plays host to the Kent State Golden Flashes (Sept. 24). Georgia concludes the season in Athens on Nov. 26 against Georgia Tech.

Georgia’s 2024 slate also begins with a Chick-fil-A Kickoff game in Atlanta. The Bulldogs take on the Clemson Tigers in that contest on Aug. 31. The remaining three non-conference contests for UGA are all at Sanford Stadium — Tennessee Tech (Sept. 7), UMass (Nov. 23), and Georgia Tech (Nov. 30).

Georgia will play two non-conference games against Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) opponents in both the 2022 and 2024 seasons. Other seasons when Georgia takes on two FBS teams outside of SEC play include 2019 (vs. Notre Dame, at Georgia Tech), 2020 (vs. Virginia, vs. Georgia Tech), 2025 (at UCLA, at Georgia Tech), 2026 (vs. UCLA, vs. Georgia Tech), 2027 (at Florida State, at Georgia Tech), 2028 (at Texas, vs. Florida State, vs. Georgia Tech), 2029 (vs. Texas, at Clemson, at Georgia Tech), 2030 (vs. Clemson, vs. Georgia Tech), 2031 (vs. Oklahoma, at Georgia Tech), 2032 (vs. Clemson, vs. Georgia Tech), and 2033 (at Clemson, at Georgia Tech).
