Georgia's 2019 football schedule gives the Bulldogs control of their College Football Playoff destiny.
Last season Georgia seemed destined to some kind of college football hardware as they went 11-1, securing the SEC East title and a spot in the SEC Championship Game. But a loss to Alabama, followed by an even more stunning loss to Texas left the team on a very sour note.
Heading into 2019, Georgia has retooled and will be looking to make another run at national title glory.
The two toughest games on paper would appear to be their home game against Notre Dame, and their road game against Auburn. The Fighting Irish went 12-0 in the regular season last year before falling to Clemson in the CFP, while Auburn are as tough a team as any in the country at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Outside of those games, Georgia will rarely have to leave the comfort of home. The Bulldogs have seven home games, an in-state rivalry game with Georgia Tech, and a game against Florida at a neutral venue. Suffice it to say, the Georgia fanbase can give the team a massive edge in most games.
Here is a full breakdown of Georgia's 2019 football schedule:
Aug 31: at Vanderbilt
Sept. 7: vs. Murray State
Sept. 14: vs. Arkansas State
Sept. 21: vs. Notre Dame
