The Notre Dame Fighting Irish football program is generally lauded for their ability to create a tough regular season schedule for themselves as they compete at the Independent level, but they have not played a team from the might SEC in almost a decade.
However, according to a report from Jeremy Fowler over at CBS Sports, that could be changing soon as Notre Dame and the Georgia Bulldogs are currently in talks for a home-and-home series, beginning in 2018.
Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity confirmed to Fowler on Tuesday that there have indeed been talks, but they’re still a ways away from an actual agreement.
When reached Tuesday, Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity acknowledged verbal communication with Notre Dame about a potential series but stressed there’s no agreement in writing and, thus, no reason to get too excited.
Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly has stated in the past that a meeting with Georgia would be a dream match up, and it would certainly spark the interest of college football fans around the nation if these two traditional powers were to meet.
