The Georgia Bulldogs have added home-and-home football series against the Texas Longhorns for 2028-29 and the Clemson Tigers for 2029-30, it was announced on Monday.
Georgia and Texas will kick off their series at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin on Sept. 2, 2028. The series will then conclude at Sanford Stadium in Athens on Sept. 1, 2029.
Georgia and Texas have only met four times on the gridiron, and two of those contests were bowl games. Texas defeated Georgia 41-28 in the 1949 Orange Bowl and then Georgia came out on top 10-9 in the 1984 Cotton Bowl, which was the last meeting between the two schools.
Texas took both games of a series that was played in Atlanta in 1957, 26-7, and in Austin in 1958, 13-8.
Georgia and Clemson will begin a home-and-home series at Memorial Stadium aka “Death Valley” in Clemson on Sept. 15, 2029. Georgia will host the second and final game of the series in Athens on Aug. 31, 2030.
The two schools previously announced a matchup in the 2024 Chick-fil-A Kickoff at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. That game is set for Saturday, Aug. 31.
Georgia and Clemson have a long history on the gridiron, having first met in 1897 and playing 64 times overall. The two schools last met in a home-and-home series in 2013 and 2014. Clemson won the first game at home 38-35, and then the Bulldogs took the second game 45-21 to extend their overall lead in the series to 42-18-4.
“The series against Georgia continues the philosophy we have at Clemson to add another Power 5 opponent to our schedule outside of our annual rivalry game with South Carolina,” Clemson Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “We have a long history with Georgia and I know our fans will be excited about this home-and-home series after playing the Bulldogs in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2024.”
The addition of these two series means that Georgia will play three non-conference opponents from the Power Five in 2029 since the Bulldogs play Georgia Tech on an annual basis.
Clemson’s release also indicates the addition of a home non-conference game against the South Carolina State Bulldogs for the 2021 season.
