SEC Sets 2025 Schedule Format For Bulldog Football

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. --- The Southeastern Conference has established a scheduling format for Georgia’s 2025 football season as well as the rest of the SEC, according to a league announcement Wednesday.


Similar to the 2024 SEC football schedule, teams will play eight conference games plus one required opponent from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 or major independent during the 2025 season.  


Schools will play the same opponents in 2025 that they are scheduled to play in 2024, with sites changed for equal home and away competition over the course of the two seasons.  The 2024 season is the first in which Oklahoma and Texas will compete in the SEC.


“We continue to monitor changes across college sports as they relate to future scheduling,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “Continuing with our current format for the 2025 season provides additional time to understand the impact of the changes happening around us as we determine the appropriate long-term plan for SEC football scheduling.”


The full schedule of dates of games for the 2025 football season will be announced at a later time.


The 2025 schedule format was approved by a vote of the SEC Presidents and Chancellors last week following a recommendation from the league’s Athletics Directors.


The 2025 season will be the second year that the SEC Championship Game will feature the top two teams in the 16-team Conference standings at the end of the regular season. Beginning with the 2024 season, the SEC will eliminate divisional standings.  





Home:  Alabama, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Texas

Away: Auburn, *Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee

*Jacksonville, Fla.


Notes on the Bulldogs’ 2025 SEC opponents:

  • This marks Alabama’s first trip to Athens since 2015 and its 21st trip overall to play at Georgia.

  • Georgia holds an 18-4-1 record over Ole Miss at home, including the Bulldogs’ 52-17 win over the Rebels in 2023.

  • Georgia will play host to Texas for the first time.  The teams last met in the 2019 Sugar Bowl.

  • The Bulldogs welcome Mississippi State to town after last having MSU in Athens in 2020.  That contest resulted in a 31-24 win for Georgia.


Georgia has its fifth spring practice on Thursday and will wrap up the spring with its annual G-Day scrimmage on April 13 on Dooley Field in Sanford Stadium at 1 p.m.  The Bulldogs kick off their 2024 season in the Aflac Kickoff Game in Atlanta versus Clemson on Aug. 31.
