The Georgia Bulldogs' game Saturday against the Vanderbilt Commodores has been canceled. However, we know head coach Kirby Smart and his staff are working tirelessly to add a final opponent in order to get this senior class one more game at home for Senior Day.
So that leaves the question: who could Georgia possibly play?
Radi Nabulsi of UGAsports.com reported this is the most likely scenario. While they aren't exactly the biggest headline, it would be an opportunity to get the seniors on the field one last time in Sanford Stadium. Colorado State has an open date and it appears as if Georgia is attempting to make it happen.
The Tar Heels have an open date Saturday and would bring an electric offense to Athens. It would prove to be one of the best games of the day, as quarterback Sam Howell and the electric UNC offense would face off with UGA and quarterback JT Daniels. The Tar Heels are fresh off of a 62-point performance against Miami.
Everyone should be pulling for this game to happen. It makes logistical sense because there would not be air travel involved and Georgia would be able to preserve their streak of consecutive years with a game against Georgia Tech, their most historic rival, aside from Florida.
The Hurricanes got off to a hot start this year behind quarterback D’Eriq King, a transfer from the University of Houston. They have been sliding recently, including a blowout loss against North Carolina last week, but would provide a matchup of national name brands.
Others to consider on this list are:
- Oklahoma State
- West Virginia
- Georgia Southern
- Appalachian State
If only Ohio State had an open date, right?
