The latest matchup in the works could be a major showdown between the Big 12 and SEC.According to Dawgs247, the University of Georgia is in talks with Oklahoma University for a home-and-home series between the two programs. No date or time for the potential series has been revealed yet.The University of Georgia continues to work furiously behind the scenes in beefing up its future football schedules.Dawgs247 has learned Georgia is in talks with Oklahoma for a future home-and-home series, with no specific dates mentioned at this time, per sources. The Bulldogs and Sooners have only met once all-time and that came in the Rose Bowl College Football Playoff semifinal game at the end of the 2017 season, an epic overtime affair that sent Georgia to the national championship game.Georgia won that lone game between the two programs in double overtime, 54-48, to advance to the College Football Playoff national championship, where it lost to Alabama.Earlier this week, Georgia added to its increasingly stacked non-conference schedule by adding ACC powerhouses Clemson and Florida State for future games.Georgia now has Power Five non-conference opponents on the schedule in 13 of the next 15 years. Among them is Texas, Oklahoma’s arch-rival, who the Bulldogs are slated to play in 2028 and 2029.Oklahoma’s next decade worth of non-conference opponents is a little murkier. Aside from games against Big Ten giants Michigan and Nebraska, and a 2020 game against Tennessee the Sooners have relatively little meat on their non-conference schedule.Georgia and Oklahoma have each played in their conferences respective title games in the last two years. Georgia won the SEC title in 2017, while Oklahoma has won back-to-back Big 12 titles.[Dawgs247]last_img
