When Georgia and Vanderbilt lock down for the first time in over two years later this month, it will be an early kickoff. It was announced Monday that the Bulldogs and Commodores will start at 12 p.m. ET and 11 a.m. local in Music City. It will be televised by the SEC network
This will be the first time the two teams have played since the 2019 season opener, which also took place in Nashville. Last year’s coming was postponed to the final makeup date for the 2020 season before being declared without a competition. Every time the game has been affected, it has been because of COVID-19 issues in Vanderbilt’s program.
As UGA couldn’t play against the Commodores in Athens last season, they only had nine regular season games and three home games left. Still, Georgia managed to go 7-2 in the regular season and claim their eighth Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl victory over Cincinnati.
Georgia are currently 2-0 on the year with wins over Clemson and UAB. Vandy is 1-1 on the year with a loss to East Tennessee State and a win over Colorado. The Bulldogs will face South Carolina on September 18 and Vanderbilt will face Stanford. Both teams will be at home in week three.
This will be Georgia’s first official road game of the 2021 season. It opened the year with a neutral venue clash with Clemson in the Duke’s Mayo Classic (Charlotte, NC). The Bulldogs’ second and third week games are at home. But recent trips to Vanderbilt have been kind to the Bulldogs when it comes to crowds. UGA tends to draw quite a few fans to Nashville and it clearly held the crowd advantage in the last meeting between the two teams.
