It appears Georgia could be the next SEC team to play Notre Dame.
CBSSports’ Jeremy Fowler reported via a source that the Bulldogs and Irish are working to finalize a home-and-home series, possibly for 2018-19.

Georgia AD Greg McGarity acknowledged there have been talks about the game, but he cautioned nothing is in writing yet and no official agreement has been met.
“I think it’d be great for the University of Georgia if we were able to make it happen,” McGarity said about the potential game.
Alabama was the last SEC team to face Notre Dame in the 2013 BCS National Championship game and embarrassed the Irish 42-14. Tennessee was the last SEC team to play Notre Dame during the 2005 regular season and lost 41-21.
Texas A&M (vs. Pac-12), LSU (vs. Pac-12) and Tennessee (Big 12) have also scheduled top non-conference future matchups recently. With all the non-conference games in talks or already scheduled, would the SEC actually move to a nine-game conference schedule in the 2016 season?
