Georgia, Notre Dame football agree on two-game series

Posted: Updated:

The University of Georgia and Notre Dame have agreed to a two-game, home-and-home football series, according to an announcement from the school.

The Bulldogs will travel to South Bend on Sept. 9, 2017, and the Fighting Irish will hit Athens on Sept. 21, 2019.

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

The teams have met just once before—a 17-10 Georgia win in the 1981 Sugar Bowl that capped an undefeated, national championship season for the Bulldogs.

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