Georgia will open up its season against Clemson and wrap things up with rival Georgia Tech as things get somewhat back to normal on the football field in 2021.

The Bulldogs face Clemson on Sept. 4 in Charlotte, one of two neutral site games for Georgia. The Bulldogs face rival Florida in their annual showdown in Jacksonville on Oct. 30. The Gators’ schedule can be found here.

It’s a shift back to an eight-game SEC schedule after league teams played only conference games in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Bulldogs face Georgia Tech in their regular season finale in Athens.

The Bulldogs finished 8-2 last season, losing to Florida (44-28) and Alabama (41-24). Georgia knocked off Cincinnati 24-21 in the Peach Bowl.

Times will be announced later.
