ATHENS Georgia will play Ohio State in a home-and-home series in 2030 and 2031, per a Columbus-Dispatch report.
The Buckeyes are scheduled to play in Athens at Sanford Stadium on Sept. 14, 2030, with the Bulldogs making the return trip to Columbus to play on Aug. 30, 2031.
The teams' have met only once before, with Georgia beating Ohio State in the 1993 Citrus Bowl 21-14 in Orlando, Fla.
It's possible the Bulldogs could meet sooner than their scheduled home and home, perhaps even this season if both programs win the remainder of their games.
The Buckeyes were No. 1 in the first College Football Playoff rankings released on Tuesday night, and Georgia came in at No. 6.
The Bulldogs and Ohio State both control their own destiny, assured CFP berths if they win out and win their respective conference championship games.
This year's College Football Playoff semifinal games are in Atlanta (Chick-Fil-APeach Bowl, Dec. 28) and Glendale, Az., (Playstation Fiesta Bowl, Dec. 28).
Georgia issued a press release on Thursday with comments from Kirby Smart and AD Greg McGarity.
"We are committed to playing in as many big games as possible, keeping Georgia on the national stage," said UGA head football coach Kirby Smart. "Matchups with a team like Ohio State are one of the many reasons great players come to Georgia."
McGarity said it's in line with other home-and-home games recently announced.
"This is yet another opportunity to compete against the very best in college football," said UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity. "To have Ohio State Between the Hedges in 2030, and the return trip to the Horseshoe in 2031 it will be another high-level matchup that will gain national attention. National home-and-home matchups in the future with Oklahoma, Clemson, UCLA, Florida State and Texas will provide our student-athletes and fans the best experiences in college football."
