A matchup between top Big Ten and SEC teams is officially on the schedule.

Ohio State will face Georgia in a home-and-home series scheduled for the 2030 and 2031 seasons. 

The Bulldogs will host the first game in the series, which will kick off on Sept. 14, 2030, and the Buckeyes will host a season opener the following year on Aug. 30, 2031. This will Ohio State's first game at Sanford Stadium, and it'll also be Georgia's first game at Ohio Stadium.

“This is going to be a terrific series for fans of both programs to look forward to down the road,” Ohio State University deputy athletics director Diana Sabau said in a statement. “This series is a testament to our commitment to scheduling and playing really good intersectional contests. It’s these kind of games that make for memorable experiences for our student-athletes.”

These will be Ohio State's first regular season games against an SEC opponent since the 1987 and 1988 seasons, when it faced LSU in a home-and-home series.

The Buckeyes had previously scheduled Georgia for a home-and-home series that would have kicked off in 2020 and 2021. However, two years after agreeing to the matchup, the future games were removed from the schedule in 2012 due to a "Big Ten/Pac-12 scheduling partnership."

With Georgia now on Ohio State's schedule, the Buckeyes have home-and-home series with five prominent programs in the next decade.

Ohio State had also scheduled a home-and-home series with Boston College for the 2026 and 2027 seasons. However, those games will not be played in those years, Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed to Eleven Warriors. They are "in process of being moved a little further out," Emig said.
