Georgia’s tilt with South Carolina, unlike Florida’s with LSU, will go on as planned, just a day late.
When discussions broke down the option of shifting the game to Athens or cancelling the game altogether, South Carolina opened up the use of a federal facility located on the school’s campus as an option, as they were adamant to not displace evacuees.
“The key thing was hotel rooms. We did not want to be in position of having anything to do with displacing evacuees,” said McGarity, per UGA Sports.
“That was something that would not have been acceptable on any level, but South Carolina did come up with an option,” McGarity continued. “We weren’t going to do that.”
In the end, everything worked out and the game will kick off from Williams-Brice Stadium as planned.
