WATCH: SEC’s schedule announcement means big changes for Georgia football

The SEC announced on Thursday that it would be moving to a 10-game conference-only schedule for the 2020 season. That means that Georgia football, along with every other SEC member, the Bulldogs are going to have some changes coming to the schedule.

The team of DawgNation insiders — Mike Griffith, Connor Riley, Brandon Adams and Jeff Sentell — react to the big moves made by the conference as well as how it will affect Georgia in the 2020 season and beyond

Among some of the changes to the schedule:

  • Georgia and Georgia Tech will not play this season. The two sides have played every season dating back to 1925.
  • Georgia and Florida are still set as of now to play in Jacksonville, Fla.
  • The season for SEC teams will begin on Sept. 26. That means Georgia’s Sept. 19 game against Alabama will need to be rescheduled.
  • There will be two bye weeks, one in the middle of the season and one on Dec. 12.
  • The SEC championship game will be played on Dec. 19 in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
  • There will still be divisions in 2020.
  • Despite earlier reports, the two additional SEC games have not been determined yet. One report stated that the strength of schedule will be a factor in which teams get added.
  • The NCAA will allow teams to begin practice with regards to the dates when games were originally scheduled. That means unless the SEC or Georgia decides to push back the start date, Georgia will begin practice on Aug. 9

The DawgNation team discusses what all this means for Georgia. Will there still be a College Football Playoff, and how would a conference-only schedule impact that? And what does the future of the Georgia-Georgia Tech rivalry, with the two teams not playing this season?

The SEC joins the Pac-12 and the Big Ten in moving to a conference-only schedule. The ACC announced a 10-game conference schedule along with one non-conference game. Notre Dame is also joining the ACC this season.
