Georgia coach Kirby Smart discusses home-and-home series with Clemson, Texas.

Georgia announced non-conference home-and-home series with Clemson and Texas on Monday.

The Bulldogs’ matchups with Texas are scheduled for the 2028 and 2029 seasons. Georgia will travel to Austin on Sept. 2, 2028, and host the Longhorns on Sept. 1, 2029.

Georgia also announced it will play Clemson in 2029 and 2030. Clemson will host Georgia on Sept. 15, 2029, and travel to Athens on Aug. 31, 2030. The teams are also scheduled to play in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in 2024.

“I think when you come to the University of Georgia, you want to play against the best. And I’ve always believed in playing Power 5 opponents,” Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Monday. “I mean, look, our fan base will follow us anywhere. They want to go. We proved that last year. We’ve proven that over the history of time that the Georgia people will travel. They want great games. They want home and homes. And as a coach, I know going out recruiting, it helps.

“The CFP has proven that they want strength of schedule. They want you to play good opponents. Who knows what the system will be 10 years from now. It certainly could all change, but I would argue that the better schedule you play and the better teams you play against, the more rewarding it’ll be 10 years from now.”
