Georgia recently made another addition to its 2022 football schedule, as the program has reached an agreement to host Kent State.
According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Georgia will pay the Mid-Atlantic Conference school $1.9 million for the contest at Sanford Stadium on Sept. 24, 2022.
Georgia is paying Middle Tennessee $1.7 million in 2018 and Arkansas State $1.8 million in 2019 for those nonconference games.
Georgia’s other announced nonconference opponent for 2022 is in-state rival Georgia Tech.
This will be the first matchup between the teams since 1998, when Georgia defeated Kent State 56-3 in Athens.
Kent State finished 3-9 last season. The Golden Flashes are coached by Paul Haynes, who is entering his fifth season.
Kent State’s challenging 2017 slate includes road games at Clemson and Louisville.
