Its been months since the initial reports surfaced but today it has become official. Notre Dame and the University of Georgia have announced that the two schools have agreed to play a home and home series. UGA will travel to South Bend to play Notre Dame on September 9th, 2017 and the Irish will head down south to the Peach State to play the Bulldogs on September 21st, 2019.
Needless to say this is outstanding news for not only Notre Dame football but also for college football in general. With the College Football playoff looming, strength of schedule will be a key factor determining the 4 teams who make the cut, and this is a prime time SEC opponent. Playing a game in the deep south will also help bolster the already superb recruiting efforts from Brian Kelly and the rest of the staff. The fact that myself as well as Moons, Dixie, and many other of the #NDTwitterati crew are from Georgia makes this even more exciting. While it is a few years away I know I am already excited for the matchup. I see a Down the Tunnel tailgate road trip in our future…..
