The Georgia Bulldogs were supposed to host FCS foe Indiana State at Sanford Stadium in 2023, but now plans have apparently changed.
Per a report from OnlineAthens.com on Wednesday, Indiana State got an opportunity to add in-state squad Indiana to its 2023 schedule and couldn’t pass it up.
The report states that no buyout will be paid, as the cancellation was agreed to by both universities:
Indiana State and Georgia mutually agreed to cancel their game in Sanford Stadium that was scheduled for the 2023 season, Indiana State athletic director Sherard Clinckscales told the Athens Banner-Herald in an email.
“I approached Georgia Athletics about canceling the game, because of the opportunity to play a Power Five school in state, which fiscally put us in a better place,” Clinkscales said.
Georgia only has its rivalry game scheduled against Georgia Tech for the 2023 season, but many are speculating that this cancellation could lead to a home-and-home with Oklahoma.
The Bulldogs already have home-and-homes scheduled with Florida State (2027 and 2028) and Clemson (2032 and 2033), so a series against the Sooners would be great for fans to see, too.
