We knew that the cancellation of the Louisville series would mean an additional home game in 2012. Reports today indicate that Florida Atlantic will be that opponent, and they will reportedly receive a guarantee of around $1 million for the trip.
That’s right – Howard Schnellenberger (and his suspenders) between the Hedges. The game sets up a potential reunion of coach and player as Mark Richt played for Schnellenberger at Miami. FAU is currently 4-7 with their season finale upcoming this weekend.
With this announcement, Georgia has traded a home-and-away with Louisville for a neutral-and-home with Boise State and FAU. The Bulldogs’ non-conference schedule in 2012 now consists of Buffalo, FAU, Georgia Southern, and Georgia Tech. In addition to those four games, Georgia’s 2012 home slate will include Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt.
