Eager to get a jump start on the 2022 non-conference slate, Georgia has reportedly agreed to host Kent State in 2022. The only other meeting between the two schools was won 56-3 by Georgia back in 1998.

The Bulldogs plan to host the Golden Flashes Sept. 24, 2022, and will pay Kent State $1.9 million for the trip. News of this game was first reported by Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald.

Kent State looks poised to join the ranks of Notre Dame (2017 and 2019) and Virginia (2020 in Atlanta) as future non-conference opponents for Georgia in the coming years. Of course, the Bulldogs also play Georgia Tech out of conference each season.
