Louisville and Georgia have agreed to a home-and-home football series for the 2026 and 2027 seasons, U of L announced Wednesday morning.

The Cardinals will host the Bulldogs on Sept. 19, 2026, and will travel to Athens for the return game on Sept. 18, 2027.

“We’re excited to host a tradition rich program like Georgia in Cardinal Stadium in 2026, which is a tribute to our football program and exciting for our fan base,” Tyra said. “In addition, the opportunity to play “between the hedges” in one of the best environments in college football is a great addition to our away schedule in 2027.”

The two teams have met on one occasion in the 2014 Belk Bowl. Georgia’s Nick Chubb rushed for 266 yards and two scores as the 13th-ranked Bulldogs defeated the 20th-ranked Cardinals 37-14 in Charlotte.

Who knows what the state of Louisville football is going to be five years from now, but hopefully it’s in a place where these games can be as thrilling as possible. I’ll also be in my early 40s, I fact I sincerely thank U of L for forcing me to reflect on this morning. Just what I needed.
