Georgia and Louisville schedule 2026-27 home-and-home football series
The Georgia Bulldogs and the Louisville Cardinals have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2026 and 2027, it was announced on Wednesday.
In the first game of the series, Georgia will travel to face Louisville at Cardinal Stadium in Louisville, Ky., on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2026. The following season on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2027, the Bulldogs will host the Cardinals at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga., which will conclude the series.
Georgia and Louisville have only met once previously on the gridiron. The Bulldogs defeated the Cardinals in that contest, 37-14, in the 2014 Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.
Georgia’s previously announced home-and-home series with Power 5 non-conference opponents include two with Clemson (2029 at Clemson and 2030 in Athens, and 2032 in Athens and 2033 at Clemson); Texas (2028 at Austin and 2029 in Athens); UCLA (2025 in Pasadena and 2026 in Athens); Florida State (2027 in Tallahassee and 2028 in Athens); Oklahoma (2023 in Norman and 2031 in Athens); and Ohio State (2030 in Athens and 2031 in Columbus). The Bulldogs also have two neutral site Power 5 games in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Atlanta’s Mercedes Benz Stadium: 2022 vs. Oregon and 2024 vs. Clemson.
“We’re excited to host a tradition rich program like Georgia in Cardinal Stadium in 2026, which is a tribute to our football program and exciting for our fan base,” said UofL Vice-President/Director of Athletics Vince Tyra. “In addition, the opportunity to play “between the hedges” in one of the best environments in college football is a great addition to our away schedule in 2027.”
