ATHENS, Ga. — Kickoff for the Georgia-Oregon matchup on ABC in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 3, in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.


This will mark only the second time the two football programs have met.  The one previous meeting resulted in a 27-16 home win for the Bulldogs in 1977.  The 2022 Georgia-Oregon matchup will mark the Bulldogs’ third appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.  The Bulldogs previously defeated North Carolina 33-24 in the 2016 and fell 35-21 to Boise State in 2011.  Georgia was scheduled to face off against Virginia to open the 2020 season in Atlanta, but the matchup was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
