Georgia-Oklahoma schedule home-and-home

By AccessWDUN Staff

ATHENS — The University of Georgia has scheduled a home-and-home football series with the University of Oklahoma for 2023 and 2031 according to an announcement by the two schools Monday.

The Bulldogs will travel to Norman on Sept. 9, 2023, and the Sooners will play in Athens on Sept. 13, 2031.

“Lincoln’s doing a great job and we look forward to building on what was a great matchup in the Rose Bowl,” said UGA head coach Kirby Smart. “Oklahoma and Georgia are two of the biggest name brands in college football and these will be great games in Norman and Athens."

"Oklahoma has a great football tradition and success over a very long period of time,” UGA Director of Athletics Greg McGarity said.

“It will be a great intersectional game that I¹m sure will excite the fan bases of both institutions.  In addition, playing the Sooners certainly adds to our continuing efforts at scheduling quality opponents outside the SEC.”

Georgia’s previously announced home-and-home series with Power 5 non-conference opponents include two with Clemson (2029 at Clemson and 2030 in Athens, and 2032 in Athens and 2033 at Clemson);  Texas (2028 at Austin and 2029 in Athens); UCLA (2025 in Pasadena and 2026 in Athens); and Florida State (2027 in Tallahassee and 2028 in Athens).

Georgia and Oklahoma have only met once previously on the gridiron. The Bulldogs edged the Sooners, 54-48, in an epic College Football Playoff semi-final at the Jan. 1, 2018, Rose Bowl game in Pasadena.
