Georgia added Mississippi State and Arkansas to the schedule.

Social media reacts to Georgia football adding Mississippi State, Arkansas to 2020 schedule

While we still don’t know when Georgia will play its 2020 opponents, we do now know who all of them will be for the 2020 football season. The SEC announced on Friday that the Bulldogs will be adding a home game against Mississippi State and a road game against Arkansas to the 2020 schedule.

The Bulldogs are already set to play at Alabama, South Carolina, Missouri and Kentucky. The Bulldogs will host Auburn, Tennessee and Vanderbilt as well, with the Florida game still set for Jacksonville, Fla.

The full schedule, as far as dates, is set to be announced next week. The ACC, Big Ten and Pac-12 have already announced their schedules for the 2020 league seasons.

“We made every effort to create a schedule that is as competitive as possible and builds on the existing eight Conference games that had already been scheduled for 2020,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said. “This schedule is a one-year anomaly that we have developed under unique circumstances presented by the impact of COVID-19.”

The announcement naturally produced a wide range of reactions from those in the national media to Georgia fans reacting to who their team would be adding to an already tough SEC West slate.

Georgia certainly benefited from adding two of the weaker SEC West teams.

There where also a number of takes regarding the rest of the SEC, when it comes to the likes of Tennesee, Missouri and Arkansas seemingly getting the short end of the stick.

We do know that Georgia’s first game will be on Sept. 26. The last game is set for Dec. 5. Every team on the league schedule will have the week of Dec. 12 in the case that a game is postponed and needs to be moved. The SEC championship game is set for Dec. 19 and will be played at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The SEC previously announced that the start of fall practice will begin for teams on Aug. 17. Teams will have 25 practices over the course of 40 days in the run-up to the first game of the season. The conference also stated on Friday that athletes would be tested twice a week during the season, and recommended that teams do test a third time as well.
