That's a wrap: Georgia ends pursuit for game to close the 2020 season
After the Vanderbilt game was called off this week, which would have been Georgia’s season and home finale, the Bulldogs looked around the country for a game to fill out its 10-game schedule.
There were possibilities from Troy to Colorado and Colorado State, and even if one team from the matchup between Ole Miss and LSU couldn’t make it to Saturday because of COVID-19 protocols, there was a thought that Georgia could step in.
Athletics Director Greg McGarity said in an announcement, “While we conducted our due diligence in finding a replacement game, we were unable to make it happen. We now focus on our upcoming Bowl game. We are also working on alternative ways to honor our senior class, who deserve the opportunity to be celebrated as one of the most prolific classes in University of Georgia history.”
The Vanderbilt at Georgia game was declared a no-contest by the SEC office.
Georgia is projected by multiple media outlets to play in a New Year’s Six bowl, likely the Peach, on Jan. 1 against Cincinnati. That will be announced on Sunday afternoon.
