Report: Georgia nearing deal to open 2022 season against Pac-12 powerhouse Oregon
The Georgia Bulldogs are reportedly discussing a big-time home-and-home series against Clemson, but now it appears that they may finalize a deal with another powerhouse squad first.
According to a report from 247Sports, the Bulldogs are working on a deal to play the Oregon Ducks out of the Pac-12 in a marquee season-opening event.
Per the report, the matchup would take place in 2022 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta:
Dawgs247 has learned that a 2022 matchup between Georgia and Oregon is in the works. According to persons with knowledge of the situation, the game would take place in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta and the SEC vs. PAC12 showdown has not yet been finalized. Those same contacts, however, indicate that final word could come in the next couple of weeks.
This year’s Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game features another SEC vs. Pac-12 matchup — Auburn vs. Washington.
No deal between the Ducks and Dawgs has been finalized yet, but if it does happen, it’ll be one of the best games of that week, no doubt.
