The Georgia Bulldogs have added the Nicholls State Colonels to their 2016 football schedule, according to a memorandum of understanding obtained from UGA.
Georgia will host Nicholls State at Sanford Stadium in Athens on a date to be determined. The two schools have never met on the football field.
Nicholls State is a member of the Southland Conference in the Football Championship Subdivision. The Colonels will receive a $525,000 guarantee for playing the game.
Georgia now has two of their four non-conference games for 2016. The Bulldogs are also scheduled to host Georgia Tech on the final weekend of the season (Nov. 26).
SEC games for the Bulldogs in 2016 include Auburn, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt at home and Kentucky, Missouri, Ole Miss, and South Carolina on the road. Georgia will also take on Florida in Jacksonville on Oct. 29.
Georgia now has one FCS team scheduled for each season through 2016. The Bulldogs host the Charleston Southern Buccaneers this season and open against the Southern Jaguars in 2015.
Back in June, Georgia announced a home-and-home football series with Notre Dame for 2017 and 2019.
