2020 G-Day game, UGA Pro Day canceled due to coronavirus
The 2020 G-Day game and UGA Pro Day have both been officially canceled following a release from the SEC on Tuesday afternoon.
As a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, the SEC made the decision to cancel all 14 Spring football games plus the Pro Days for each school.
“This is a difficult day for all of us, and I am especially disappointed for our student-athletes,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “The health and well-being of our entire conference community is an ongoing priority for the SEC as we continue to monitor developments and information about the COVID-19 virus.”
The SEC stated that other athletics activities, including team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, whether required or voluntary, will remain suspended through at least April 15.
Georgia’s G-Day game was scheduled for Saturday, April 18 at 2:00pm ET at Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium.
Pro Day for the Georgia Bulldogs was slated for Wednesday, March 18, and was expected to be attended by Jake Fromm and others.

“The Bulldog Nation is fully focused on the health and well-being of everyone,” said UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity. “By strictly following the guidelines of local, state and federal authorities, together we can defeat the virus! We look forward to returning to the campus activities we enjoy and cherish.”
