Georgia fans can mark their calendars for April 18, as that will be when the Bulldogs will take the field to participate in the 2020 version of G-Day.
The Georgia football Twitter account put out the news on when the Bulldogs will hold their annual spring scrimmage in Sanford Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

Georgia also revealed it will start spring practice on March 17. The April 18 date is one week after The Masters, which has been the recent tradition for Georgia. The Bulldogs will have 14 practice prior to the scrimmage, with the scrimmage functioning as a 15th practice. Players will be divided up into two teams, the Red team and the Black team, with the first-team defense and second-team offense on one side and the first-team offense and second-team defense on the other for G-Day.
The game will give fans a first look at some of the incoming players, such as quarterback Jamie Newman. He transferred from Wake Forest earlier this month and is already enrolled at Georgia. He is the favorite to replace Jake Fromm, the starting quarterback for Georgia for the past three seasons.
Another draw for G-Day is that it will be the first chance we get to see the 2020 early enrollees which include: running back Kendall Milton, cornerback Jalen Kimber, safety Major Burns, wide receiver Justin Robinson, defensive tackle Warren Brinson and quarterback Carson Beck. Those six members have already started classes at Georgia. It is also likely that the rest of Georgia’s 2020 signing class will be recognized during the game, as that was the case during the 2019 game.
The spring scrimmage will also give us a chance to look at some of the progress made by the likes of George Pickens, Zamir White, Nolan Smith and Travon Walker. Those four are expected to be big players for Georgia in the 2020 season.
As for the regular season, Georgia will open against Virginia on Sept. 7 in Atlanta. Georgia’s home opener for the 2020 season is set for Sept. 12 against East Tennessee State.
