The Georgia Bulldogs will open the college football season against the Austin Peay Governors on Saturday, Sept. 1 at Sanford Stadium.

Winning a National Championship was tantalizingly close for the Georgia Bulldogs last season. They were up in the title game in the fourth quarter, but ultimately saw their lead slip away and then lost it in overtime. Now, Kirby Smart and his team are looking for redemption — and some actual hardware. Their journey starts on Saturday, Sept. 1 as they welcome the Austin Peay Governors to Sanford Stadium.

Jake Fromm remains the starting quarterback for Georgia, despite the arrival of 5-star freshman Justin Fields. Around Fromm, he’ll have some new faces taking up larger roles, namely running back D’Andre Swift taking over for the now departed Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. Still, the Bulldogs rushing attack should remain in full force.

As for the Georgia defense, they’ll have to replace some huge pieces, most notably linebacker Roquan Smith. While that may be so, this is still one of the more talented groups in the country, especially in regards to a strong secondary anchored by cornerback DeAndre Baker.

Austin Peay isn’t without talent as sophomore quarterback Jeremiah Oatsvall is one of the most hyped players in the Governors’ conference this season. That being said, Oatsvall and his team will have their work cut out for them as they try even to just make noise on Saturday afternoon on the road in Athens.

Details for Saturday’s game are below:

Date: Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018

By all accounts, Georgia should again be a team that figures into the College Football Playoff picture for the 2018 season. And really, Austin Peay doesn’t appear to be a team that’s going to be able to derail the Bulldogs’ chances to start the year. Stranger things have obviously happened, but UGA should ultimately roll on Saturday afternoon.
