2018 is shaping up to have quite the home schedule.
Georgia’s 2018 football schedule is quickly coming into the view. The Bulldogs entered into an agreement with Murray State to play a game at Sanford Stadium on Sept. 15 of that season.
UGA will pay the Racers $500,000 for the trouble. That’s according to the terms outlined in a contract turned over to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday in compliance with an open records request. The contract was signed by Murray State Athletic Director Allen Ward on March 7 and by UGA AD Greg McGarity on March 28.
Also included in documents was the contract for the recent agreement between Georgia and the University of Massachusetts to play a football game on Nov. 17 of 2018. It revealed that UGA will pay the FBS team $1.5 million to come to Athens for that game. The Bulldogs released the news of the addition through its sports communication office but did not include the contract terms.
Remind me again why adding a ninth conference game to the schedule would be bad.
By the way, if you’re interested, it sounds like UMass is starting a trend.
