Report: Georgia potentially eyeing 2 schools for make-up game after Vanderbilt matchup canceled
Georgia is in search for a Senior Day game after its Saturday contest against Vanderbilt was canceled. It was originally set for Dec. 5 before being postponed to Dec. 19, but now won’t be played at all due to roster issues surrounding the Commodores.
However, there could be a pair of possible teams that could face the Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium, according to media reports out of Athens and Atlanta.
Radi Nabuisi, publisher of Rivals affiliate UGASports.com, is reporting that the Dawgs are looking to line up a game with Colorado State. This would be the 1st all-time meeting between the 2 programs, with the Rams at 1-3 on the season.
Meanwhile, Zach Klein, sports director at ABC affiliate WSB-TV, is reporting that Colorado could also potentially be in play. The Bulldogs and Buffaloes split a 2-game series in 2006 and 2010, with both teams winning in their respective stadiums. This year, the Buffaloes are 4-1, and were set to play Oregon on Saturday before that game was canceled due to the Ducks instead replacing Washington in the Pac-12 Championship Game due to COVID-19 issues in the Huskies program.
We’ll see if the Bulldogs are allowed to play a non-SEC team. If not, there’s some speculation about another potential fill-in game:
Keep an eye on Ole Miss vs LSU. If one of those teams has to cancel (and here's hoping that they do not), UGA would be waiting to fill in on the dance card.
