ATHENS -- The conference football schedule rotation for the University of Georgia and the other 13 teams for the next 12 years was announced Monday by the Southeastern Conference.
The athletic directors re-confirmed the rotation at their May meeting following the decision to continue playing an eight-game conference schedule, to include six games against division opponents and two games against non-division opponents. One of the non-division opponents will be a permanent annual opponent and the other non-division opponent will rotate each season.
The rotation schedule for Georgia:
|2016||at Ole Miss|
|2017||vs. Mississippi State|
|2019||vs. Texas A&M|
|2022||at Mississippi State|
|2023||vs. Ole Miss|
|2024||at Texas A&M|
Permanent opponents in 2014:
Home - Florida, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Auburn
Away - Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina.
Sites alternate home and away through 2025.
Monday's announcement pertains to the rotating non-division opponents. The rotation begins with the 2014 season and concludes with the 2025 season. Schools will play all permanent opponents on a home and away basis beginning in 2014.
Schools will not play their non-divisional rotating opponents in back-to-back seasons to allow for schools to play all conference members on a more frequent basis. Also, the rotation of teams in the first six years of the 12-year cycle is not identical to the rotation in the second six years in order to maintain four home games and four road games per season for each school.
