This season the Tide’s schedule was done, then it wasn’t done, then it was done again. In one final change, the Tide announced today that a home game on Saturday, December 8th with the University of Georgia Bulldogs will be played in Pelham.
The Alabama/Georgia rivalry is so important to the respective teams that both agreed to add it to their completed schedules. Georgia Head Coach John Hoos said his players “were very supportive of adding the game before they left for Christmas break.”
“Georgia, Tennessee, and, of course, Auburn are teams that any any Alabama sports team has to beat. These are the best rivalries in college sports. We are a combined 12-1 against these teams in the last two years,” said Coach Mike Quenneville. Georgia holds the series lead 3-8 versus the Tide, but the Tide are 3-1 in the last 4 games.
