A day after announcing a series with Vanderbilt, Georgia State announced on Friday that it has scheduled a home-and-home football series with North Carolina.
Though announced a day after the games against the Commodores, it will be the first game the Panthers will host against a team from a “power” conference. Georgia State will play at North Carolina on Sept. 11, 2021, with the Tar Heels playing in Atlanta on Sept. 10, 2022. North Carolina isn’t scheduled to play at Georgia Tech in 2022.
Georgia State announced on Thursday that it will host Vanderbilt on Sept. 28, 2024 and play in Nashville on Sept. 20, 2025.
Like the games with the Commodores, the series will be revenue neutral because the teams will exchange $200,000.
With possible NCAA penalties looming because of alleged academic misdeeds committed under previous coaching staffs, the Tar Heels were defeated by Clemson in the ACC title game last season. It was North Carolina’s first appearance in the conference championship game.
