The Bulldogs draw Ole Miss and Auburn from the SEC West along with the rest of their SEC East schedule. The SEC is expected to make future changes to the conference schedule as it debates moving to an 8-game or 9-game schedule, but that is not expected to affect the 2023 season.
Georgia picked up its 2023 schedule because the Bulldogs were scheduled to visit Oklahoma in Norman, Okla. The return game was moved to 2031, but that was changed by SEC order after the Sooners joined. The final league will be held in 2025.

Without Oklahoma, Georgia’s non-conference schedule includes UT-Martin, Ball State UAB and Georgia Tech.
The Bulldogs will have seven home games next season, with UT-Martin, Ball State, South Carolina, Missouri, Kentucky and Ole Miss all coming to Athens. Road games require visits to Georgia Tech, Auburn, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Georgia and Florida will meet next season in Jacksonville, Florida.
The Ole Miss game figures to be interesting, as it will be Smart’s first time coaching with Lan Kiffin. The two were both members of Alabama’s 2014 and 2015 coaching staffs, with Smart serving as defensive coordinator and Kiffin as offensive coordinator. Ole Miss went to the Sugar Bowl last season after winning 10 games and is currently ranked No. 16 in the nation heading into the 2022 season.
How the team looks Georgia will have a new starting quarterback as Stetson Bennett exhausts his eligibility. Players like Nolan Smith, Jalen Carter, Broderick Jones and Kelly Ringo could all be headed to the NFL after the 2022 season.
Don’t worry, Georgia will once again bring in plenty of talent. Brook Bowers, Malachi Starc, Michael Williams and Jamon Dumas-Johnson are just a few of the talented players who have several years of eligibility left. Georgia has a good chance of signing one of the top recruiting classes in the country next season, as the Bulldogs currently have the No. 3 recruiting class.
Georgia is the No. 1 team in the 2022 season after starting the season 3-0. Bulldogs outscore opponents 130-10
