The Georgia Bulldogs have added the UL Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns to their 2016 football schedule, according to a memorandum of understanding obtained by DogBytesOnline.
Georgia will host UL Lafayette at Sanford Stadium in Athens on November 19, 2016. The two schools’ only previous meeting was in 2010 in Athens, a game which Georgia won 55-7.
The Ragin’ Cajuns, members of the Sun Belt Conference, will receive a $1.2 million guarantee for playing the game.
Georgia now has three of their four non-conference games scheduled for the 2016 season. The Bulldogs are also slated to host Georgia Tech on the final weekend of the season (Nov. 26) and Nicholls State on a date to be announced.
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.
The addition of Georgia tentatively completes the 2016 non-conference football schedule for UL Lafayette. The Cajuns are also scheduled to open the season at home vs. Boise State on Sept. 3, host McNeese State on Sept. 10, and visit Tulane on Oct. 8.
