The University of Georgia and Notre Dame are working on a deal to schedule a home-and-home series in football. According to CBS Sports’ Jeremy Fowler, the games would take place during the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
When Fowler reached out to Greg McGarity, the Georgia athletic director was noncommittal. However, he did acknowledge the schools were in talks, and expressed enthusiasm for the potential matchup.
“I think it’d be great for the University of Georgia if we were able to make it happen,” McGarity said.
Notre Dame and Georgia have only played once in their long and storied histories. UGA defeated the Irish in the 1981 Sugar Bowl to wrap up an undefeated season, and claim the program’s second (and most recent) title.
