Per a report from AJC.com, the game will be held on Aug. 31, 2024 and will be part of the Chick-fil-A Kickoff festivities at Mercedes-Benz Stadium:
“We think it’s going to be a tremendous blockbuster game,” said Gary Stokan, president and CEO of Peach Bowl Inc., which operates the annual Chick-fil-A Kickoff.
Whether or not the Bulldogs and Tigers play more in the future remains to be seen, but this should be a huge game for both schools.
