Georgia, Ohio State to play home-and-home series in 2030-31


Ohio State has won 31 of its last 32 home games against Big Ten opponents since 2012 by an average margin of 23.3 points.

The schools announced the future series on Thursday.

UGA will host the first game at Sanford Stadium in Athens on September 14, 2030 and then travel to Columbus the following season for a game on August 30, 2031.

Strangely enough, OSU and UGA have only played once before, when the Bulldogs took down the Buckeyes at the 1993 Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

"Our fans have asked for SEC opponents, and we want to create these impactful contests", Ohio State deputy athletic director Diana Sabau told The Columbus Dispatch. "It's these kind of games that make for memorable experiences for our student-athletes".

A quick look at the College Football Playoff Rankings suggests it's well within the realm of possibility that No. 1 Ohio State and No. 6 Georgia could meet in the playoff this year.

Wow, what a time in college football. The Bulldogs have agreed to play the UCLA Bruins (2025 and 2026), Florida State Seminoles (2027 and 2028), Texas Longhorns (2028 and 2029) and Clemson Tigers (2029, 2030, 2032 and 2033). The Bulldogs also have three neutral site Power 5 games in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Atlanta's Mercedes Benz Stadium: 2020 vs. Virginia; 2022 vs. OR; and 2024 vs. Clemson.

In addition to Georgia, Ohio State has future home-and-home agreements with OR (2020-2021), Notre Dame (2022-2023), Washington (2024-2025) and Texas (2025-2026).
