Notre Dame and Georgia to play pair of games

ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia and Notre Dame, two of the programs richest in history and tradition, have agreed to a two-game series according to an announcement Wednesday by UGA J. Reid Parker Director of Athletics Greg McGarity.

The Bulldogs and Fighting Irish will play in South Bend on September 9, 2017, and in Athens on September 21, 2019.

"This series will generate an overwhelming level of excitement for our student-athletes and supporters," McGarity said. "We have a tremendous amount of respect for Notre Dame and look forward to the start of this memorable experience."

The two teams have met only once before -- in the 1981 Sugar Bowl -- a 17-10 Georgia victory that capped an undefeated, untied season and secured a consensus national championship. Vince Dooley coached the Bulldogs while Dan Devine was head coach of the Fighting Irish.

"Playing Notre Dame will be an honor and a great challenge for us," UGA head coach Mark Richt said. "I have a lot of respect for the job Coach Kelly is doing there and I'm sure college football fans across the country will enjoy watching our two teams compete."
