Georgia Bulldogs: SEC schedule

Big 3: Georgia's 2013 SEC schedule

October, 18, 2012
ATHENS, Ga. -- The SEC office released the conference’s 2013 football schedule Thursday afternoon, and while it is only a one-year setup -- the league hopes to develop a long-term scheduling system for 2014 and beyond -- it does address one of Bulldogs fans’ biggest gripes.

Every other season since 1996, Georgia has played Tennessee and Vanderbilt on consecutive weekends, playing both games in Athens one year and making trips to Knoxville and Nashville on back-to-back weekends the next season. In 2013, the midseason trips to Tennessee are broken up by an Oct. 12 home game against Missouri.

Perhaps the two most-discussed facets of the schedule will be how a scheduling quirk will bring the Bulldogs back to Auburn next year for back-to-back seasons, and that the South Carolina game, which before this season had been Georgia’s SEC opener every season since 1992, moves back to the front of the schedule.

"The 2013 schedule will obviously be very challenging,” UGA athletic director Greg McGarity said in a university release. “Our number one priority throughout this process was to protect our long-standing rivalry game against Auburn, and in order to keep this series intact, it necessitated a return to Auburn in 2013. We will start working on the 2014 rotating SEC schedule this Spring, and we can confirm that Auburn will be returning to Athens in 2014."

Let’s dig into some of the finer points of the Bulldogs’ new league slate:

As expected, Georgia picked up a 2012 road game against SEC newcomer Missouri and dropped a visit to Alabama, according to the conference football schedule released by the SEC on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs will be Missouri’s first official SEC opponent on Sept. 8, when they visit Columbia. That will move Georgia’s traditional early-season meeting with South Carolina to later on the schedule.

The other SEC rookie, Texas A&M, will host Florida on the same day.
