Georgia, Notre Dame agree to two-game series

Athens, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Georgia football announced on Wednesday that the program will take on Notre Dame for a two-game series, beginning in 2017.

"This series will generate an overwhelming level of excitement for our student-athletes and supporters," said UGA director of athletics Greg McGarity. "We have a tremendous amount of respect for Notre Dame and look forward to the start of this memorable experience."

The Bulldogs and Fighting Irish will kick off the set on Sept. 9, 2017 in South Bend, then complete the home-and-home with a contest in Athens on Sept. 21, 2019.

Georgia and Notre Dame have only met once previously -- a 17-10 Bulldogs victory in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 1981, which propelled the SEC stalwarts to an undefeated season and national title.

"As our football schedules evolved with the start of our Atlantic Coast Conference competition in 2014, we had future games slated with top-drawer opponents in virtually all the major conferences," said Notre Dame vice president and athletics director Jack Swarbrick. "One exception was the Southeastern Conference, so we are pleased now to be able to check that box."
