The SEC announced on Thursday that it will move to a schedule of only 10 games for 2020. For the season. This means that Georgia football, like every other SEC member, the Bulldogs are planning to make some changes.
DawgNation’s private team – Mike Griffith, Connor Riley, Brandon Adams and Jeff Sentell – is responding to the major steps of the conference and how it will affect Georgia in 2020.
Some of the schedule changes include:
- Georgia and Georgia Tech are not playing this season. Both sides played every season beginning in 1925.
- Georgia and Florida are still scheduled to play in Jacksonville, Fla.
- The SEC team season will begin on September 26th. That means Georgia’s September 19 game against Alabama will need to be changed.
- There will be two weeks, one in the middle of the season, the other on December 12th.
- The SEC championship game will be played on December 19 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
- 2020 There will still be divisions.
- Despite previous reports, two additional SEC games have not yet been identified. One report states that schedule robustness will be a factor in which teams will be involved.
- The NCAA will allow teams to start training based on the game dates originally scheduled. This means that if the SEC or Georgia does not decide to return the start date, Georgia will start the practice on August 9.
The DawgNation team is discussing what all this means for Georgia. Will there still be a College Football Playoff, and how will only the conference schedule affect that? And what will be the future of the Georgia-Georgia Tech competition when both teams are not playing this season?
The SEC is joining Pac-12 and the top ten to move to a conference-only schedule. ACC has announced a schedule of 10 game conferences along with one non-conference game. Notre Dame is also joining ACC this season.
