Georgia's Leaked 2024 Schedule Is an Absolute Gauntlet

The Georgia Bulldogs 29-game winning streak ended with a 27-24 loss in the SEC Championship game and now, their schedule for next season has supposedly been leaked.

The Bulldogs were the No. 1 team in the College Football Playoff heading into the conference championship, but with their loss, they were bounced from the playoff entirely.

According to UGASports, the Bulldogs will play eight SEC games. In 2024, the SEC will have 16 teams.

Here are the matchups, per UGASports:

  • 8/31 Clemson (in Atlanta)
  • 9/7 Tennessee Tech
  • 9/14 @ Kentucky
  • 9/21 Bye
  • 9/28 @ Alabama
  • 10/5 Auburn
  • 10/12 Miss State
  • 10/19 @ Texas
  • 10/26 Bye
  • 11/2 Florida
  • 11/9 @ Ole Miss
  • 11/16 Tennessee
  • 11/23 UMass
  • 11/30 Georgia Tech

So, looking at the matchups above, the Bulldogs have two bye weeks and will face Alabama in Tuscaloosa. This is their first regular season meeting since 2020, when Alabama beat them 41-24.

Following Alabama, they have a tough stretch against three more SEC teams, including this year's No. 3 seed in the College Football Playoff, the Longhorns, who, along with Oklahoma, will be making their first appearance in the SEC.

After that, they have their second bye and take on Florida, Ole Miss, and Tennessee in three straight before rounding out the season in a cupcake matchup with UMass and, like 2023, against Georgia Tech.

It appears quarterback Carson Beck will be back for 2024, but still, this will be a tough stretch of games for the Bulldogs, especially coming off a heartbreaking end to their 2023 national championship hopes.

We'll also see how Clemson responds to their down season—will Dabo use the transfer portal to add talent and challenge Georgia?

While this is a tough schedule, many fans on X are pointing to Oklahoma's as even more difficult.

"OU has entered the chat..." the user wrote regarding the Sooners schedule. They face Texas, Alabama, Auburn, Missouri, LSU, and more.

Either way, the SEC will be action-packed in 2024, especially with a 12-team College Football Playoff.
