Game time and television information was announced for Georgia’s Week 2 game against South Carolina on Wednesday. On Thursday, ESPN put out its early-season schedule, which revealed the game times for Georgia’s games against Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee State.
Georgia’s Week 1 game against Austin Peay will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 1. That game will be broadcast on ESPN and follows the Ole Miss-Texas Tech game, which will be played in Houston.
Georgia’s Week 3 game, which will be played Sept. 15 against Middle Tennessee State, will kick off at 7:15 p.m. on ESPN2.
The Week 2 game against South Carolina will start at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 8. That game will air on CBS.
Last season Georgia went 13-2, winning the SEC Championship Game and advancing to the championship game of the College Football Playoff.
Georgia will have to replace a number of key pieces from that team, most notably Roquan Smith, Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. But Georgia does bring back talented players such as quarterback Jake Fromm and cornerback Deandre Baker. Georgia is expected to be a top-10 team when the season starts.
Georgia brought in the No. 1 overall signing class in the country, headlined by 5-star quarterback Justin Fields, who was the No. 2 overall player in the 2018 recruiting class.
The Austin Peay game will mark the start of Kirby Smart’s third season at Georgia. He is 21-7 in his first two seasons.
