Ohio State-Georgia series cancelled

Ohio State has cancelled a proposed home-and-home series with Georgia because of the Big Ten/Pac-12 scheduling partnership, reports ESPN.com.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said at the SEC spring meetings that Ohio State backed out of an agreement to play the Bulldogs in 2020 and 2021.

The Big Ten/Pac-12 partnership is scheduled to begin in 2017 and will have 12 intra-conference matchups. Ohio State's participation will likely start in 2018, Ohio State AD Gene Smith said.

The schools did not have a contract for those games, but instead had an understanding to try to schedules games for those years.

Ohio State contacted Georgia in May saying it would not be able to confirm those dates, which terminated the agreement.
