Georgia, Notre Dame schedule two-game series

Telegraph StaffJune 25, 2014 


University of Georgia head coach Mark Richt leans forward to listen to a reporter's question during the annual Pigskin Preview event at the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. UGA heads into the 2014 season with a new defensive coordinator and a new quarterback.


Georgia and Notre Dame have agreed to a two-game football series, according to an announcement Wednesday by Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity.

The Bulldogs and Fighting Irish will play in South Bend, Indiana, on Sept. 9, 2017 and in Athens on Sept. 21, 2019.

“This series will generate an overwhelming level of excitement for our student-athletes and supporters,” McGarity said. “We have a tremendous amount of respect for Notre Dame and look forward to the start of this memorable experience.”

The two teams have met only once, in the 1981 Sugar Bowl. Georgia won that game 17-10 to complete a perfect season and wrap up the national title.

“Playing Notre Dame will be an honor and a great challenge for us,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “I have a lot of respect for the job (Notre Dame head coach Brian) Kelly is doing there, and I'm sure college football fans across the country will enjoy watching our two teams compete.”
