Georgia will have no more than one home football game, if any, played at night this season.
The Bulldogs’ Oct. 16 game against Vanderbilt in Sanford Stadium will start at 12:21 p.m. and be televised on the SEC Network, it was announced today. That means the Dogs’ first five home games this season have been scheduled in the noon hour.
The Sept. 4 season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette started at 12:21 p.m. and the Sept. 18 game against Arkansas at noon. Saturday’s game against Tennessee is scheduled for a 12:21 p.m. start and the Nov. 6 game against Idaho State for a 12:30 p.m. start.
That leaves only one UGA home game for which the starting time has not been set: the Nov. 27 game against Georgia Tech.
Starting times are driven by TV, depending on which network picks up each game. The next two Georgia games (Tennessee and Vanderbilt) will be on the SEC Network.
Georgia has played night games on the road the past two weeks at Mississippi State and Colorado.
