ATHENS — Georgia has announced it will play a home-and-home football series with Louisville in 2026-2027, per a school release.
The Bulldogs will play in the Cardinals’ stadium on Sept. 19, 2026, with Louisville returning to Athens for a game on Sept. 18, 2027.
It’s a great opportunity for a Cardinals’ program that could use a marquee opponent like Georgia on its schedule.
Louisville was 4-7 last season, 8-5 in 2019 and 2-10 in 2018.
For Georgia, it’s a respectable out-of-conference game in seasons that already include a home game with UCLA (2026) and a road trip to Florida State (2027).
Georgia won its only previous meeting with Louisville, 37-14. The teams met in the 2014 Belk Bowl.
The scheduling represents the latest in the Bulldogs’ aggressive scheduling strategy for the 2020s, which includes this season’s opening game against Clemson in Charlotte on Sept. 4.
