Post Dawgs vs. Oklahoma State to open 2007

Thursday November 9, 2006

It seems official – the Tulsa World newspaper is reporting that Oklahoma State has agreed to an ESPN-brokered deal to come to Athens for next season’s opening game.

Georgia will return the visit to open the 2009 season in the “first game played at the completely renovated Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.”

Oklahoma State is currently 5-4 overall and 2-3 in the very tough Big 12 South. They have an upset win over Nebraska to their credit this year, and the offense is coming around nicely (until they ran into Texas last week). Georgia will recognize the Cowboy offense – OSU offensive coordinator Larry Fedora was behind the Florida offense from 2002-2004.

Georgia’s future non-conference games of interest (better list here):

2007: Oklahoma State, @ Georgia Tech
2008: @ Arizona State, Georgia Tech, Cincinnati
2009: Arizona State, @ Oklahoma State, @ Georgia Tech
2010: @ Oklahoma, Georgia Tech
2011: Louisville, @ Georgia Tech
2012: @ Cincinnati, @ Louisville

Down the road….Clemson and Oregon

2009 looks like a tough schedule on paper – Arizona State, Okla. State, and Tech. Throw in SEC West games with LSU, Arkansas, and Auburn. Of course we don’t know where the fortunes of college football will have teams in three years.
