The unexpected gift should the season happen for SEC football fans - the addition of two conference games got more clarity on Friday with the league releasing each team’s two opponents.
Though the actual date of games is still not fleshed out, this much is known - that Georgia will go to Arkansas and host Mississippi State.
Overall, Georgia comes out well- getting to add a pair of teams with first-year head coaches.
In Arkansas, historically a tough place for even Georgia’s better teams to play, the Dawgs get a date with revered former offensive line coach Sam Pittman as he rebuilds the Razorbacks.
The Bizarro Dawgs, coming back to the Classic City for the first time since being undressed in 2017 with Dan Mullen on the sidelines, figure to be a team in transition with Mike Leach and his Air Raid expected to still transitioning in. Georgia lucks out by not going against the Angry Pirate in year two or three. Personally, I look forward to this game for the game-week soundbites from Leach, alone.
Overall. Georgia will play at home:
Auburn, MSU, Vandy and Tennessee.
Road opponents: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mizzou and South Carolina.
The alleged neutral site game against Florida remains in Jacksonville.
Among other SEC East teams, Florida also picks up Arkansas, playing them at home while traveling to Texas A&M.
Mizzou apparently ticked off Greg Sankey as its two added teams are LSU and Alabama.
