Clemson and Georgia nearly met for the national title two seasons ago. Today, they announced they are extending an upcoming non-conference series against each other.
The two powerhouses will meet in 2032 and 2033, it was confirmed today. The first matchup is set for Sept. 4, 2032 at Georgia with the rematch in Death Valley scheduled for Sept. 3, 2033.
This two-game set adds to a previously scheduled home-and-home between the Tigers and Bulldogs, which will take place in 2029 and 2030. Additionally, these two storied programs will play in the 2024 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.
“The resumption of this storied rivalry has been a high priority for our athletic department and our fans,” Clemson Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “We look forward to all five scheduled meetings between these two great programs, including the meeting in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2024 and the four on-campus games starting in 2029.”
