The Oklahoma Sooners refuse to shy away from competition with top tier opponents. Prepared to compete on a national level, the university constantly schedules series against other Power 5 members. The most recent announcement pairs Lincoln Riley’s high flying offense against the Georgia Bulldogs once again.
Although the College Football Playoff marks the only setting in which these current juggernauts have battled, Georgia owns a 1-0 record over the Sooners. Looking to settle a vendetta, Oklahoma will play host to the SEC foe on September 9th of 2023 during in the first meeting of the series. Returning the favor, the Bulldogs will host the premiere program of the Big 12 in Athens. However, the 2031 pairing will likely feature a completely different set of players and potentially coaches.
“We are especially excited about this series because it helps us celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in 2023,” Joe Castiglione told Sooner Sports. “Greg McGarity and his staff at Georgia helped us navigate an unusual scheduling circumstance and we are grateful for the diligence and patience. We understand the return game date is later than usual, but very much look forward to taking our program to Athens to play in one of the country’s great venues. As we have said on many occasions, we understand our responsibility to college football fans and tradition to play iconic games. We welcome opportunities such as this one that reinforce our brand and celebrate the historically great programs.”Via Sooner Sports
