The Georgia Bulldogs have added the Indiana State Sycamores to their 2023 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the Binding Memorandum of Understanding and an amendment to the original MOA were obtained from Indiana State University via a state public records request.
Georgia will host Indiana State at Sanford Stadium in Athens on a date to be determined in 2023. The date was initially agreed to be determined by Dec. 1, 2017, but the amendment pushed that date back to May 1, 2018.
According to the document, Georgia will pay Indiana State a $500,000 guarantee for playing the game.
Indiana State is a member of the Missouri Valley Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). In their first season under new head coach Curt Mallory, the Sycamores finished winless at 0-11 and 0-8 in conference play.
The Sycamores are the second known non-conference opponent for Georgia in 2023. The Bulldogs are also slated to close the regular-season at in-state rival Georgia Tech in Nov. 25.
In SEC action in 2023, Georgia is scheduled to host Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina, and Ole Miss and travel to Auburn, Florida (in Jacksonville), Tennessee, and Vanderbilt.
Georgia now has four FCS opponents on their future schedules. The Bulldogs are set to host Austin Peay in 2018, Murray State in 2019, ETSU in 2020, and Indiana State in 2023.
