The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the Georgia State Panthers have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2029 and 2030, both schools announced on Tuesday.
The series will begin with Wake Forest hosting Georgia State at Truist Field in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2029. The following season, Wake Forest will return the trip to take on Georgia State at Center Parc Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2030.
“This is a great opportunity for Wake Forest to host a fun matchup at Truist Field and for our future Demon Deacons to travel to Atlanta and play in Georgia State’s newly renovated Central Parc Credit Union Stadium,” said Wake Forest athletics director John Currie. “Georgia State AD Charlie Cobb has done an incredible job of building a strong football and athletics program in DEACTOWN Atlanta and I am excited for our many area Demon Deacon football alums and fans to celebrate DEACTOWN there in 2030.”
“Wake Forest has a great tradition of players from the state of Georgia and we look forward to playing in an area where we recruit so we can further showcase the Demon Deacon brand,” head coach Dave Clawson said.
The 2029 Wake Forest-Georgia State contest will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools on the gridiron.
